Experience and depth matter

Working with E Co. means clients don’t have to reinvent the wheel. We have worked on over 250 sustainable development projects, in 82 countries with organisations such as IFC, World Bank, EBRD, AfDB, UNDP & UNIDO achieving funding of USD 250 million from donors including GEF, GCF, CIF, AF and CTF.

Funders

Climate change mitigation and adaptation finance includes local, national and transnational funding from public, private and alternative sources. E Co’s expert team will identify which sources of funding are right for each project or programme, whether it be grants, loans, equity investment or blended finance.

We help clients source funding from a diverse array of major funders, including:

  • bilateral funders like CIDA and AFD;
  • multilateral funds like SREP and CTF;
  • UNFCCC mechanisms like the GCF, Adaptation Fund and GEF; and
  • private lenders and investors.

Our deep experience base means we’re very comfortable working within the differing operational modes of these funding bodies and so are able to help clients navigate the funding process swiftly and efficiently.

Clients

Our clients include international finance institutions, non-governmental organisations, development agencies and government agencies. Clients value the fresh perspective we bring to assignments and rely on us to develop projects and programmes that deliver lasting transformative results. Our deep experience with a variety of entities and project types allows us to navigate assignments with skill and efficiency, helping clients achieve their objectives with less time and effort.

Some of our clients include:

”They are much more plugged in with what’s happening in the donor community.”
