Présentation
The contribution consists of support to a Challenge Fund ; REACT (Renewable Energy, Adaptation and Climate Change Technology). REACT - sub-Saharan Africa, is administered by Afica Enterprise Challenge Fund Ltd (AECF), a non-profit company with AGRA (African Green Revolution) as the sole owner/member. AGRA is a "“non profit organization registered in Washington State as a public charity”. The contribution includes components in seven of Sweden’s cooperation countries and the regional strategy for sub-Saharan Africa.

The objective of REACT is to stimulate small and medium-sized companies, to develop business models, services and products in renewable energy and energy efficiency that improve the lives of the poor. The idea is that companies supported by REACT are prepared to take risks, which they otherwise would not take. The ideas put forward by the companies, are identified through competitions in the respective countries. Applications are assessed on the basis of clear and transparent criteria and in three separate steps - this, to assure an independent and transparent process. REACT also supports capacity development of enterprises in a variety of areas, brokering service for successful companies to access capital for scaling up, learning and advocacy on national and regional issues (laws, rules, licensing, trade barriers etc.).

The decision on the intervention covers five years and amounts to 400 000 000 SEK.

Total committed amount : USD 5,569,206
