This e-Learning course provides an overview of the critical concepts of climate finance as well as tangible best practices for scaling-up international climate finance to address mitigation and adaptation activities in developing countries. This course is organized into 2 Modules. Module 1 offers an introduction and interpretation of climate finance and familiarizes participants with the landscape of climate finance. Module 2 reviews the risks and barriers to private investment in climate finance, and introduces critical concepts in accessing, operationalizing and managing climate finance from both the public and private sectors. Both modules provide a solid foundation in order to apply knowledge in planning monitoring and evaluation of climate finance.
Note: The training is also offered as a facilitated course twice annually with e-Certificates issued upon successful completion. The facilitated version features guidance of an expert facilitator to lead participants through lessons and moderate the ‘peer discussion forum’ where participants interact to share knowledge.
