    Every two years since 2009, European universities in collaboration with the Centre for European Research in Microfinance (CERMi) and supported by the European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) have organised the European Research Conference on Microfinance. The Research Conference is a unique event that gathers together high-level researchers, academics, professionals, and students ensuring that the latest research on the sector is disseminated to the whole microfinance community. Further information on previous editions of the conference is available here.

    Climate + Finance

    Join us for Climate + Finance, a Devex event during London Climate Action Week where government leaders, industry pioneers, funders, and philanthropists will crack the code on climate finance to build resilience and achieve a sustainable future.

    The problem: Climate change is an existential threat and low- and middle-income countries are bearing the brunt of it. We need smarter, equitable finance solutions, and fast.

    The solutions:

    ● Equity first: How to get more green where it’s needed most? We’ll tackle equitable financing for adaptation and loss and damage.
    ● Finance innovators: Unveiling innovative tools such as debt-for-climate swaps, climate risk insurance, prizes, and green bonds to de-risk investments in LMICs.
    ● Powering up clean energy: Can we finance a clean energy revolution that’s affordable for all? We’ll discuss incentives and strategies.
    ● Healthy planet, healthy people: Exploring financial models to fortify health systems battered by climate change.
    ● Collective goal on finance: Will COP29 deliver on its new finance goals? We’ll dissect the progress and chart a course for better transparency and collaboration.

    Devex journalists will serve as expert guides, fostering critical conversations with key decision-makers in the climate finance landscape.

    This is your chance to be part of the solution. Request to join us in person in London on June 25th or watch online on June 27th.

Solar energy is used for various applications, such as lighting, heating, cooling, pumping, cooking, and generating electricity. Solar energy also provides clean and affordable energy access to rural and remote areas that are not connected to the national grid. The private sector has played a key role in driving the growth and innovation of solar energy in Kenya.

    The Kenya Off-Grid Solar Access Project, provides electricity to 1.3 million households and 800 public facilities in 14 counties using solar mini-grids, standalone solar systems, and clean cooking stoves. Several local and international companies have invested in solar projects, products, and services for residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional customers. These include solar home systems, solar lanterns, solar water heaters, solar water pumps, solar refrigerators, solar dryers, solar cookers, solar street lights, solar mini-grids, and grid-connected solar power plants.
