Information short course ‘Formulating Proposals for Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development: Designing Green Climate Fund (GCF) Projects’ 2019 at the University of Twente, The Netherlands.

The University of Twente’s Department of Governance and Technology for Sustainability is pleased to announce that registration is open for the short course ‘Formulating Proposals for Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development: Designing Green Climate Fund (GCF) Projects’.

Course dates: 15 weeks online (25 February – 7 June 2019); 2 weeks residential in the Netherlands (17 June – 28 June 2019).

The aim of the course is to develop participants’ skills in preparing proposals in the fields of clean energy access, environment and climate change so that they can mobilise climate finance, particularly from the Green Climate Fund, and catalyse clean energy deployment in developing countries.

Participants from backgrounds related to energy, environment and climate change will be admitted, such as: staff from National Designated Authorities (NDAs), staff from Accredited Entities or those seeking accreditation, entrepreneurs, consultants, project developers, government officials, policy advisors, and staff of utility companies and NGOs.

The course is non-profit making and is delivered by the University of Twente (a public university) in partnership with the UNEP DTU Partnership, Risø, Denmark and E Co.

ICREP was the 2016 Dutch nomination for the UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development.

In answer to the evaluation question ‘would you recommend ICREP to a colleague?’ participants from ICREP 2016 gave a resounding ‘yes!’ (score of 4,9 out 5).
