Courses: 25 February – 28 June 2019. Designing GCF projects @ University of Twente
*Last spaces available for 25th February-28th June 2019 intake*
Are you looking to develop your Green Climate Fund (GCF) project development skills? Together with the University of Twente, E Co. is offering an international course on formulating GCF project proposals for low carbon, climate-resilient development (ICREP). In 2016, ICREP was the Dutch nomination for the 2016 UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development.
The aim of the course is to develop participants’ skills in preparing proposals for low carbon and climate resilient projects so that they can mobilise climate finance, particularly from the Green Climate Fund, and catalyse the deployment of climate change solutions in developing countries. The course has an online component and a two-week residential module.
