Climate finance readiness training (CliFiT) is a dynamic, interactive approach to raising awareness and capacity-building among public bodies in developing countries and emerging economies. The overall objective of the training is to provide tailor-made support, strengthening the ability of countries to build a coherent national framework for climate finance, access international climate finance and spend funds in an effective and transparent manner.

The primary target group for CliFiT is people working in ministries and other public bodies where climate finance readiness (CFR) is a relevant issue. This may include:

  • Representatives of ministries for the environment, finance and planning, and other relevant line ministries

  • Representatives of National Designated Authorities (NDAs) and existing or planned National Implementing Entities (NIEs)

  • GIZ national staff and international think tanks in the area of climate finance and climate finance readiness

Participants in the training should already have at least some basic experience in the area of climate policy.
