  • In Benin, the Fund will support the design of climate adaptation measures and best practices in port operations.
  • The financing will see Morocco produce and sell 105 million cubic meters of potable water to around 1.5 million people in Safi and El Jadida.

The Canada–African Development Bank Climate Fund (CACF), established to support gender-affirmative climate change projects in Africa, has approved $36.3 million for two private sector operations to advance climate adaptation initiatives across Africa.

This amount, provided in the form of concessional loans to private sector companies, includes $18.3 million approved for the rehabilitation and expansion of the Port Autonome de Cotonou in Benin and another $18 million to support the construction of three seawater desalination plants under the Green Investment Program of the OCP Group.
