CliFiT4SE follows a modular concept, offering several combinations for different learning paths and addressing the specific training needs of sector experts. The toolkit comprises six training modules that allow delving into the most important issues starting at distinctive levels. The introductory module starts with providing a short overview on the concept of climate change, and briefly explains climate change mitigation and, more importantly because still often misunderstood, climate change adaptation. It also introduces basic information on climate finance.
The five thematic modules focus on climate change indicators, the key elements of the Green Climate Fund relevant from a project developer’s perspective, country ownership and nationally determined contributions (NDC), financing instruments and mechanisms as well as the GCF concept note template (see image below).
