FELICITY (Financing Energy for Low-carbon Investment – Cities Advisory Facility)  the joint initiative of the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) providing advisory services and capacity building tailored to the needs of municipalities and financial intermediaries in Brazil, China and Mexico is now integrated in SOURCE PPF (Project Preparation Facility) Finder.
The PPF Finder functionality on SOURCE, provides automatically to project developers at the early stage of preparation, a list of relevant organizations offering technical and financial advises according to project localization, sector and type of transaction. Then the project manager can use the PPF Finder to send an expression of interest to the PPF and invite a member of their staff to review the project documentation directly on SOURCE.
With the support of FELICITY, SIF organized series of online webinars attended by more than 20 Mexican municipalities and conducted SOURCE further trainings in Brazil and Mexico to 5 different municipalities. Thanks to SOURCE PPF Finder, these municipalities, and many others to come, will now be easily connected to the technical assistance provided by FELICITY during their project development. The next step will be to integrate SOURCE in Mexico and Brazil with a common approach between EIB, GIZ and the Interamerican Development Bank. https://www.eib.org/en/products/advising/felicity/index.htm
