Officials of the Pan African Vision for the Environment (PAVE) have disclosed that the Lagos-based non-governmental organisation (NGO) is collaborating with the Climate Technology Initiative Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI-PFAN) in the area of sustainable energy.
“We are currently in discussions and anticipate that there will be many synergies and opportunities for our respective organisations to explore to support clean energy initiatives in Nigeria,” stated Anthony Akpan, head of PAVE.
According to him, the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN) is a multilateral, public-private partnership initiated by the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) in cooperation with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Expert Group on Technology Transfer.
“PFAN operates to bridge the gap between investments and clean energy businesses. CTI PFAN operations and activities are funded by the CTI and other funding partners including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) Energy for All Programme, the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) and the International Centre for Environmental Technology Transfer (ICETT).
