Imani Development is pleased to announce the launch of the Green Economy Transition Facility (GETF), an initiative aimed at catalysing green business solutions in Malawi.

The GETF, financed by UNDP and Irish Aid, is birthed out of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)’s Growth Accelerator, and designed to support private sector companies in initiating and scaling alternative energy and fuel-efficient solutions.

Eligible businesses and projects can apply for matching grants of up to US$300,000 to test innovative inclusive business models in the green business sector.

Within its first window, GETF encourages companies to propose projects aimed at investing in alternative cooking solutions such as, sustainable charcoal-briquettes and pellets, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), Biogas/ethanol and any other corresponding clean cooking fuels. Funding can be accessed by companies that have the potential and drive to inspire urban households in Malawi to transition into clean cooking solutions. Up to 19 projects will be supported under the GETF’s first window which runs from April 2023 to 2025.

More information on who can access the facility and how to apply can be found on the GETF website.

Imani Development and Landell Mills are fund managers for the Green Economy Transition Facility (GETF).
