Climate Funds

Access to Carbon Finance

Nexus for Development manages two Climate Funds, the Climate Finance Revolving Fund and the Clean Cooking Loan Fund. These funds support project developers and enterprises that are interested in increasing their revenue through carbon finance.

The funds provide the financial means necessary to cover the costs for the emissions reduction certification process for a new project or a registered project about to start the regular monitoring and verification cycle.

The loan can be repaid from the sale of the carbon credits if they occur during the duration of the loan and/or from the enterprises’ own resources.
