Resources for Deeper Thinking

We want to encourage deeper thinking. As well as developing projects, we support other related activities that can help improve climate and development outcomes.

Our Newsletter: ‘Deeper Thinking’

We produce a regular newsletter entitled ‘Deeper Thinking’. Here we discuss issues relevant to our focus on low-carbon, climate-resilient development projects that deliver lasting benefits.

Courses and capacity building

We believe in strengthening our sector through capacity building and learning. Many of our assignments will have a capacity building component to help clients and partners work more effectively in future. We also produce webinars so that participants can deepen their knowledge about key topics.

In addition, we are collaborating with the University of Twente to offer international training courses to help public and private sector practitioners improve project formulation and enhance their ability to access climate finance.

This page provides an overview of the courses and webinars we offer.

GCF insight

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) lies at the heart of efforts to raise USD 100 billion for climate change mitigation and adaptation activities in developing countries. There is significant demand to understand what’s working – and not working – in GCF project development. We regularly conduct studies and surveys that go deeper into sector wide themes, challenges and opportunities. Our ‘GCF insight’ series sheds critical light on experiences, challenges and trends in developing GCF projects, from the perspective of GCF stakeholders – including National Designated Authorities (NDAs), Accredited Entities, Implementing Entities, Project Developers and others.

Please click here for further information on the ‘GCF insight’ series.

Below, please find a list of our most recent ‘GCF insight’ studies. Please contact us for more details about any of these, or to suggest a future ‘GCF insight’ topic.
