Greenhouse gas mitigation and adaptation to climate change requires the mobilization of enormous financial resources in the years to come. The financing is being carried out in a complex environment – not least because resources are channelled through an increasing number of international funds and financing mechanisms.

The resulting challenges for decision makers in climate financing are manifold. Among others, they consist in getting an overview of financing options, access modalities and spending rules, understanding the diverse modes of access and funding priorities, or in addressing the difficulties of national public finance systems in absorbing the additional funding.

Against this backdrop, adelphi with financial support by GIZ within the framework of the CF Ready Programme on behalf of the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany developed the interactive Climate Finance Readiness Training toolkit “CliFiT”. The training aims at assisting technical staff and decision makers from developing countries and emerging economies navigate the mentioned complexity. It should also enable them to identify ways to enhance capacities in their countries towards climate finance readiness.

Newly developed toolkit for sector experts

With the international climate change debate moving from goal setting to NDC implementation, and implementation rather being the task of sector experts than of climate experts, there is an urgent need to reach out to this new target group.

The new “Climate Finance Training for Sector Experts - CliFit4SE” is addressed to sector experts, who have an interest in exploring climate finance options. Thus, CliFit4SE aims at providing one element to better link those in charge of developing and implementing projects to climate finance institutions who deplore the lack of bankable climate change projects and transformative project pipelines.

Further information on this new training toolkit can be found under the tab “CliFiT4SE toolkit” on this website or in the CliFiT4SE factsheet that can be downloaded here:
