The University of Twente’s Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainability has announced that registration is now open for the short course ‘Formulating Project Proposals For Climate Change Mitigation And Clean Energy’. The aim of the course is to develop participants’ skills in preparing proposals in the fields of clean energy access. The course builds upon the most relevant developments in the fields of climate and sustainable energy finance in order to scale up efforts on GHG mitigation and to increase clean energy access. In particular the course focuses on how the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions—NAMAs—established under the UNFCCC can be implemented, as well as discussing how to mobilize climate finance and catalyze clean energy deployment in developing countries.
The course includes guest lectures from leading specialists from the public and private sectors, assignments, case studies, discussions, and site visits. Participants work in pairs on a NAMA proposal. The proposal will be written in a format suitable for submission to climate change and/or clean energy funding sources. The whole proposal will be presented and discussed with feedback on possible areas for improvement.
