Financing the transition to a climate-resilient and low-carbon development remains a major challenge for most developing countries. The purpose of this course is to provide participants with the tools, methods and approaches to access climate finance and invest in climate mitigation and adaptation actions. It will analyse the global climate finance landscape and present options and challenges for financing the nationally determined contributions (NDC) of developing countries and economies in transition. Under the Paris Climate Accord, climate finance is expected to significantly increase in the coming years. Most developed countries remain committed to mobilising USD 100 billion per year by 2020 to support developing countries. The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is one of the primary recipients of this funding commitment.
