blended finance

Blended Finance is dynamic concept, in constant adaptation to the market needs. CAF conceives Blended Finance as “the complementary use of donations (or highly concessional instruments) in addition to reimbursable financing from both private and / or public sources, in order to provide greater viability and financial sustainability to projects”.

Blended Finance Schemes

CAF promotes the use of Blended Finance in its operations through different schemes. These mechanisms have been adapted to the current financial needs of the countries of the region and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  • Programs (concessionality)
    Over the last 10 years, CAF has mobilized about USD 2,650 million of high concessional resources towards 44 projects from 14 countries in the region through blended finance programs implemented collaboration with strategic financial partners.
  • Special Purpose Vehicles
    Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) allow CAF to meet the additional financing demand of specific markets in relatively more developed countries of the region. Through SPVs, CAF mobilizes resources under more favorable market conditions for the development of infrastructure. Currently, CAF participates in the following SPVs:
    • Senior Debt Fund for Infrastructure in Colombia CAF-AM Ashmore I
    • Infrastructure Debt Fund in Uruguay CAF I
    • Infrastructure Debt Fund in Uruguay II CAF-AM


  • Collaboration with green funds
    CAF has been accredited as an Implementing Partner to the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the Adaptation Fund and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). Specifically, the GCF has been a valuable partner towards the formulation of climate change mitigation and adaptation projects with blended finance structures, key priorities in the CAF development agenda.


  • Latin America Investment Facility (LAIF)
    The technical assistance provided by the Latin America Investment Facility (LAIF) has been instrumental for the development of investment projects in the region. This initiative allows CAF’s member countries to leverage resources from the European Commission to finance infrastructure initiatives.
