Introduction:

The International Energy Agency estimates that the world needs some $1 trillion a year over 2012 to 2050 to finance this transition. Climate finance is, therefore, critical for investing in mitigation and adaptation activities in developing countries.

This course introduces the concept of climate finance, provides an overview to the current landscape of climate finance, the sources and instruments being used, and offers a deeper look at how to be ready to plan, access and deliver finance. This course also presents innovative approaches to scale-up amounts needed to meet the climate change challenge, instruments to overcome risk, and the role of National Development Banks in scaling-up private finance.

Target Audience:

Senior and mid-level policy-makers and climate finance practitioners from public sector international organizations, private sectors and academic institutions. Especially helpful for practitioners who are involved in accessing, delivering, and monitoring/evaluating climate finance at the international, national and subnational level.
