Climate Technology

The World Bank Group’s Climate Technology Program is establishing a global network of Climate Innovation Centers in seven countries around the world: the Caribbean, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, South Africa, and Vietnam. The centers are locally-owned institutions that provide clean technology ventures with the knowledge, capital, and access to markets required to launch and scale their businesses.

Climate Innovation Centers

Climate Innovation Centers provide holistic support to entrepreneurs and new ventures that surpasses traditional incubation models. The centers offer seed financing, policy interventions, and network linkages, as well as technical and business training. Explore the map to learn more about each center.
