What is it?
The KawiSafi Ventures Technical Assistance Facility (KSV TAF) is a 5-year program officially launched in April 2020. The KSV TAF has been seeded with US$ 5 million from the Green Climate Fund (GCF)and aims to address targeted market failures or externalities in the off-grid energy ecosystem. It is designed to provide both firm-level and sector-level support that falls outside the typical investment activities but which if implemented, would support positive impacts for communities in East Africa. Such support includes consumer protection, promoting gender inclusion and knowledge creation.
