A new fund has been set up by the AfDB in order to encourage action to combat climate change across Africa.

The Africa Climate Change Fund (ACCF) will be managed by the development bank with an aim to giving out grants to African countries or to NGOs to carry out projects which tackle climate change.

The fund is of high importance in ensuring that African countries can gain access to financing that will allow them to protect themselves from climate change.
