Carbon Accelerator Programme for the Environment (CAPE) – Pilot Implementing Partner

The Carbon Accelerator Programme for the Environment (‘CAPE’) seeks to address the challenges of investment flow into projects addressing both climate change and biodiversity loss, by accelerating high integrity nature-based carbon projects. As part of its pilot phase, FSD Africa seeks to contract a firm or consortia (hereafter referred to as “Implementing Partner”) to develop the CAPE platform, provide transaction advisory and project development services for 3-5 high-potential project developers, generate an ecosystem of praxis, and document reflections and insights for broader dissemination and thought-leadership. The CAPE pilot is an integral guide for future activity in FSD Africa’s mission to accelerate the development of nature-based solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Implementing Partner (‘IP’) will be an important partner in defining such activity; there is substantial scope for the Implementing Partner to advise on how CAPE can be effective in its approach and service delivery. The CAPE Pilot will run for 18 months and is expected to begin in August 2024.
