ARM-Harith Launches $250 Million Climate Investment Fund in West Africa

By Jean Marie Takouleu

Mauritius-registered infrastructure fund manager ARM-Harith Infrastructure Investments is launching a new fund. The facility, which will be capitalised at $250 million, will focus on financing climate-resilient infrastructure in West Africa.

Through its new fund, ARM-Harith Infrastructure Investments wants to become a player in climate finance in West Africa. Its new project, The ACT Fund, aims to finance the development of sustainable and climate-resilient infrastructure. The Mauritius-registered infrastructure fund manager is embarking on its new challenge at a time when the effects of climate change are worsening in West Africa, exacerbating drought in the Sahel countries and causing erratic rainfall and severe flooding in others.
