The CAP aims to advance and raise awareness for innovative solutions to market barriers for financial aggregation, with a view to mainstream good practices across and within markets. The CAP’s activities and value proposition are articulated in terms of a global offer (awareness raising, knowledge products and global network) and an in-country offer (showcase transactions and market development activities).
The CAP identifies and supports solutions in a globally-coordinated, local partnership model targeting the private sector. The CAP does this through the establishment of outcome-oriented, national working groups in each of the CAP's target markets. These provide a forum to facilitate networking, coordination and sharing of information amongst national actors and help inform and guide the CAP’s in-country work.
The CAP is also developing a framework for assessing different market’s readiness for financial aggregation in the small-scale, low-carbon energy sector, and conducting in-depth assessments at the regional and country level. These assessments will inform the development of CAP Action Plans setting out a roadmap with specific barrier-removal activities to systematically address the barriers that may be holding back financial aggregation in a given market, enable broader replication and market scale-up. The CAP will develop and implement pilot market development (barrier-removal) activities in selected markets.
Finally, the CAP will launch a Call for Proposals to identify Innovative Financial Aggregation Structures and Models to support.
The Climate Aggregation Platform's mandate is global and includes all developing countries with an initial focus on two pilot countries, Uganda and Rwanda. The CAP's focus is on addressing barriers to financial aggregation as applied to debt financing within the small-scale, low-carbon energy universe. While the CAP is agnostic with regard to technology sectors and business models, its initial focus is on distributed, small-scale low carbon energy assets. This includes a wide range of technologies. Over time, as the CAP’s offer is further developed, its model can be replicated and extended to other countries and potentially to other low-carbon sectors.
