ASEAN Catalytic Green Finance Facility: An ASEAN Infrastructure Fund Initiative

The ASEAN Catalytic Green Finance Facility (ACGF) is an innovative financing facility designed to scale up green infrastructure projects in Southeast Asia.

Launched in April 2019 under the ASEAN Infrastructure Fund, the ACGF will provide loans and technical assistance for sovereign green infrastructure projects on sustainable transport, clean energy, and resilient water systems. It aims to catalyze private capital by mitigating risks through innovative finance structures. The facility will mobilize a total of $1 billion including $75 million from the ASEAN Infrastructure Fund, $300 million from ADB, $336 million from KfW, €150 million from the European Investment Bank, and €150 million from Agence Française de Développement.
