Training programme to develop bankable climate projects by EUROCLIMA+ and the INCAE Business School starts with an online session/

This programme will accompany participants between March and September, where through action learning, proposals will become concept notes for presentation

to potential investors.

San Jose, Costa Rica, March 24. With 72 participants from 16 countries in the region, the training programme for the Formulation of Bankable Climate Projects will begin on March 25.

This initiative of the EUROCLIMA+ Programme through the German Society for International Development (GIZ) GmbH, under the framework of Climate Governance, in collaboration with the Latin American Centre for Competitiveness and Sustainable Development (CLACDS) of INCAE Business School, will work together with national officials selected after an application process in which more than 200 proposals were received.

The fundamental focus of this training programme is to provide participants with tools that will allow them to better design climate projects that can be bankable, and through that, bring investment closer to initiatives that target the sustainable development of Latin American countries and that contribute to the fulfilment of their NDCs.

The participation of different nationalities and areas of expertise will provide an opportunity to exchange experiences and good practices, promoting joint learning and collaboration to address common challenges among the representatives of the different EUROCLIMA+ partner countries.

The course will take place between March and September 2020, a process through which participants will advance on converting projects and proposals into concept notes, which will allow for the involvement of new actors in the financing of climate initiatives, infrastructure projects or programmes related to the sustainable development of the region.

In addition to the virtual sessions, participants will have the support of experts and coaching processes, which will allow them to receive feedback from specialists and share successful experiences.
