Promoting Renewable Energy Finance in Africa: IRENA’s Virtual Marketplace and Project Navigator

IRENA presented two of its new platforms - the virtual marketplace and the Project Navigator - both aiming to enhance the prerequisites for developing and financing renewable energy to encourage private-sector participation and financing. The event was held on the sidelines of the third United Nations International Conference on Financing for Development. Project developers, technology providers, government representatives and regional bodies attended the workshop and were encouraged to give feedback. The event was chaired by Ms. Fatima Denton, Director of Special Initiatives, UNECA.
