Supporting sustainable investments in the agricultural, energy and food production sector in Cuba's Central region
This project aims at supporting the identification and financing of the best possible investments in agriculture, livestock breeding and agro-forestry and at underpinning their implementation in order to promote sustainable practices based on agro-ecology principles while mainstreaming climate change mitigation and adaptation into the agriculture and livestock sectors.
Specific objectives of the project are:
a) To extend agro-ecological and agro-silvo-pastoral technologies, tackle environmental and social (E&S) risks and bring institutional support to the main stakeholders of the PRODEGAN project (cooperatives, agro-industries, decentralised service providers, local authorities, producers associations, research institutions) in Camaguey, the main animal production area in the country;
b) To enable the most adapted investment for a modern integrated carbonization/cogeneration plant by a private investor (5 candidates identified by Cuban authorities) as a part of an overall clean, locally produced, energy production strategy coupled with the elaboration of innovative bio-sourced co-products through the valorisation of the invasive marabú tree;
c) To develop Environment and Social Governance and a green portfolio into BANDEC, the main financing institution in the local agricultural sector.

This is regarded as a pilot operation of European collaboration to support the peace process in Colombia, through a common initiative to boost investment in post-conflict municipalities. This pilot operation is the result of dialogue with FINDETER and the experience accumulated through the first LAIF program with FINDETER. The operation consists of a credit facility to finance territorial development in post-conflict areas. This would be accomplished through the structuring of projects (Technical Assistance) and investments (Investment Grants) in priority areas which have been selected by the Colombian government through the PDET (Programmas de Desarrollo con Enfoque Territorial). This operation will support FINDETER to focus on the municipalities thereby identified.

This Oruro project is Bolivia’s first large-scale photovoltaic project. It involved the construction of a 50 MW photovoltaic (PV) power plant in the Altiplano region, in the highlands of western Bolivia, and its connection to the Bolivian national grid. The favourable sun radiation conditions in this area mean that it is ideally suited for solar power generation. The PV plant boosts electricity generation by approximately 100 GWh/year and contributes to the diversification of the Bolivian energy mix, reinforcing Bolivia's national strategy to develop renewable energies (wind and solar), which are expected to reach 70% of installed capacity in 2025.
