PROJECT FICHE:
DESCRIPTION

This program is aimed at financing investments in renewable energy and environmental protection projects in Latin America. To complement the investment funding, the EU granted technical assistance funds through LAIF to carry out studies that foster innovative technologies and projects in the sector with the aim of converting them into potential investment projects for CAF. They included feasibility studies and renewable energy potential assessments for Latin American countries, among other climate change projects and initiatives.

RESULTS
The program contributes to mitigation and adaptation to climate change as well as protection of the environment in Latin America through 10 studies in the fields of electrical integration, “green” energies and climate-related issues, promoting environmentally focused infrastructure investments.
