GCF has enhanced its ability to tap financing from the business world with the recent signing of an Accreditation Master Agreement (AMA) with Proparco, the private sector arm of the development agency of France. The AMA sets the legal framework for Proparco to begin proposing and implementing climate finance projects in developing countries as a GCF Accredited Entity. Proparco plays a pivotal role in the Choose Africa initiative, launched earlier this year by French President Emmanuel Macron to encourage EUR 2.5 billion of investment in SMEs in Africa.
