  • The Climate Finance Training for Sector Experts (CliFiT4SE) is a dynamic, interactive training approach to inform sector experts in developing countries and emerging economies about climate finance opportunities. The overall objective of the training is to provide tailor-made support, strengthening the ability of sector experts to apply a climate-lens to their sector and assess the relevance of sector projects for climate change adaptation and mitigation – and thus for climate finance. https://clifit.org/clifit4se-toolkit
  • Through the Climate Expert tool, GIZ enabled enterprises to formulate adaptation strategies and define measures that reduce their vulnerability to climate change. Doing so created demand for financing these measures and raises awareness about adaptation and associated business opportunities among both, enterprises and financiers. Further piloting is ongoing with the International Trade Center (ITC). The Climate Expert entails a practical 4-step approach and working materials that help companies develop adaptation strategies that fit its characteristics. It is based on an Excel Tool that allows companies to identify climate-related risks, opportunities and applicable adaptation measures, and evaluate them regarding their feasibility and effectiveness using cost benefit analysis. www.climate-expert.org
