The Corporación Andina de Fomento (CAF) - Banco de Desarrollo de América Latina (Andean Development Corporation – Development Bank of Latin America) is a regional financial institution established in the late 1960s, located in Venezuela. CAF focuses on the promotion of sustainable development and green economies in over 15 countries in the region through supporting the technical and financial structuring of projects. It offers a wide variety of financial products and services, including loans, equity and guarantees. CAF’s partnerships with public and private sector organizations have allowed it to play an active role in the promotion of projects and programmes that generate environmental benefits and to address climate change impacts. Over US$ 800 million has been invested in green energy and greenhouse gas emissions mitigation projects. Such projects have focused on energy efficiency, renewable energy solutions, sustainable transport and climate change adaptation through disaster risk reduction and ecosystem services. CAF sought accreditation to the GCF in order to continue developing climate change projects and programmes together with its partners that will reduce the impacts of climate change in its region.
