The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is hosting a training workshop on climate finance on 29 October – 1 November in Tunis, Tunisia. The training workshop is co-organised with the African Development Bank and with UNEP-DTU Partnership.
The main purpose of this training workshop is to enhance the skills of project proponents in preparing concept notes for submission to the Green Climate Fund and other financial mechanisms, based on the project visions identified as priorities in the country’s climate change process (Nationally Determined Contribution, Technology Needs Assessment, Green Climate Fund country programme, etc.).
By the end of the workshop, training participants will have the ability to demonstrate the transformational potential of the proposed projects and thereby increase their probability to access climate finance and achieve their adaptation and mitigation targets.
The training workshop is in line with the Centre’s and African Development Bank’s efforts to support countries achieve low carbon development and resilience to climate change through investments in climate technologies and follows the guidance and decisions, of the Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC, specifically the Article 10 of the Paris Agreement on the need for strengthening cooperative action on technology development and transfer.
The participants in this training workshop include the National Designated Entities (NDEs) to the CTCN, the National Designated Authorities (NDAs) to the GCF and the experts from various ministries from North African countries.
