For years, African countries relied heavily on their exports and foreign aid to fund vital infrastructures such as roads, power, and clean water. This changed in 2006, when the Seychelles became the first sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) country, ex-South Africa, to make its way into the international financial markets with the issue of its $200 million Eurobond. Since then, Eurobonds have become an important source of development finance for African countries, particularly in terms of infrastructure funding.
Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs) describe the movement of money that is illegally acquired, transferred or spent across borders. They can vary by origin, complexity and intent, but they all have the same eroding effect on a country’s tax base, particularly for resource-rich developing countries which do not have the means to invest in public health, education, and sustainable development. These assets represent vast untapped wealth in the form of civil claims arising from historic grand corruption and fraud which belong to governments and their people.
The ‘Paris Agreement Capital Transition Assessment’ (PACTA) was launched in 2018 by the 2° Investing Initiative (“2DII”) to measure the alignment of stocks, bonds and bank loans with a range of climate scenarios under the Paris Agreement.

That’s at least $3.5 trillion more annually than is currently being invested in low-carbon and fossil fuel infrastructure. These findings suggest that nations and corporations will need to ramp up decarbonization efforts fast.
