In recent years the global community has come to an agreement that urgent climate action is necessary. This would be in the form of both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the resilience and adaptive capacity of societies to the harmful impacts of climate change resulting from past emissions. These actions require significant financial resources. This tutorial provides an overview of what climate finance is and where countries access different sources of financing.
This e-tutorial is a learning initiative of the joint UNDP-UN Environment National Adaptation Plan Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP), developed in association with the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). The e-tutorial is available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.
Who should take this course:
The engaged public and practitioners with an interest in understanding climate finance.
Policy-makers and adaptation planners wanting to increase their understanding on sources of funds for climate action.
Policy-makers and experts attending face-to-face trainings on “Climate change adaptation finance”.
