Introduction:

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.

This course builds on existing climate finance guidebooks and assessment reports developed by strategic partners such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the World Bank.

What’s New:

The course takes stock of the tested knowledge and practices in climate finance from different development partners and delivers a unique and timely learning product to build participant capacities in planning, accessing, delivering, and monitoring climate finance at the national level. This course has been revamped from the previous Climate Finance Essentials course to ‘Climate Finance: Innovative Approaches Supporting Climate Action’ that incorporates the Paris Agreement outcomes and also, covers reflections of the recent COP 22.

Objectives:

The overall objective of this course is to inform policy planners and climate finance practitioner about impactful climate investments in both mitigation and adaptation initiatives, and how the target of climate finance is a range of interventions that advance low-carbon and climate-resilient growth.

Specifically, this course provides relevant background, practical knowledge and 'how-to' skills in order to:

  • Understand the climate finance life cycle, main actors and flow of climate finance through various channels
  • Manage the planning, accessing, delivering and monitoring of climate finance at the national level
  • Utilize policy and financial instruments in the public sector to mitigate risk, leverage and scale-up Climate Finance investment from the private sector
  • Amplify developing country Climate Finance Readiness by identifying the national systems and capacities needed to effectively use Climate Finance, as well as the tools, mechanisms and modalities available to help with Climate Finance Readiness

The training on "Managing Project Preparation for Climate Change Adaptation” on 6 – 10 December 2016 is a comprehensive five (5) day training program to enable government officials to prepare fundable project proposals for climate change adaptation. The training is offered jointly by The Climate Change Asia (CCA), Asian Institute of Technology.

The objectives of the course are:

  • help in understanding climate change realities and risks; how to manage risks, screen for sensitivities, and address key vulnerable groups and areas; how climate change adaptation can be grounded in national development plans and broader national adaptation policy and strategic frameworks.

  • aid in identifying sources of international funding options and develop capacities for accessing those sources.

  • build capacity in project preparation for climate change adaptation by illustrating ‘how-to’ methods, tools and processes for use in rigorous adaptation project/program design in line with policies and plans.

  • provide an introduction to Implementation and monitoring of projects.

Organizer: The Climate Change Asia (CCA) at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) aims to meet the capacity building needs in the Asia Pacific region, in line with the Paris Agreement and 2030 Development Agenda. The overall goal of the CCA Program is to “assist countries to meet, and even surpass, the targets outlined in their INDCs by enhancing national capacities to meet diverse but specific needs—technical, institutional, and policy-related”. The Program has two broad outputs. First, to build capacities of government officials, private sector managers, NGOs and other key actors in the region in identifying and managing climate change responses, over the next five years, consistent with nationally determined contributions. Second, to translate these enhanced capacities into on-the-ground action, by equipping countries with the knowledge and skills required to prepare, secure financing for, and implement 'bankable' climate change mitigation and adaptation projects.

Target participants: The training is open to government officials that manage project proposal and development from Asia and the Pacific.

Venue: Bangkok, Thailand

Course Fee: A course fee of USD 2,500 per participant includes the training material as well as meals andrefreshments during the training. Participants are expected to make their own flight and accommodation arrangements.

Deadline for Registration: 21 November 2016

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.
