This tutorial introduces the concept of climate finance.
In recent years the global community has come to an agreement that urgent climate action is necessary. This would be in the form of both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the resilience and adaptive capacity of societies to the harmful impacts of climate change resulting from past emissions. These actions require significant financial resources. This tutorial provides an overview of what climate finance is and where countries access different sources of financing.
The course will enable you to:
- Describe the importance of climate information in adaptation planning and decision-making
- Identify technical resources for assessing climate risks
- Explore the role of National Hydro-meteorological Services in the NAP process
- Discuss how priority climate actions can be enhanced by climate scientific information
- Identify climate products and services that support NAPs
- Discuss how to promote effective partnerships between climate information producers and users
Who should take this course:
- The engaged public and practitioners with an interest in understanding climate finance.
- Policy-makers and adaptation planners wanting to increase their understanding on sources of funds for climate action.
- Policy-makers and experts attending face-to-face trainings on “Climate change adaptation finance”
