The Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (RRC.AP), an institute-wide centre of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in collaboration with Institute for Global Environmental Strategies and under the umbrella of Climate Change Asia will organise a Training Programme on Developing Project Proposals on Climate Change Mitigation from 12 to 16 December 2016, Bangkok, Thailand. The training is financial supported of Ministry of the Environment, Japan. The overall objective of the training programme is to contribute to the proliferation of clean technologies and the advancement of low-emission climate-resilient development by establishing a cadre of skilled personnel in Asia able to prepare bankable projects, and access and utilise international climate finance.
The expected results and outcomes of the training programme:
• Participants will have improved their understanding of the operational procedures and policies of the GCF;
• Participants will have learned about the process of a project concept development and the subsequent steps towards project approval;
• Several groups of participants will have developed outlines of a GCF Project Concept Note;
• Participants will be in a position to further develop the GCF Concept Note outlines at their respective agencies and disseminate the acquired knowledge to relevant colleagues;
• Lessons learned from the use of new training materials prepared for the programme will be applied to revise and refine these materials for future training events of a similar nature.
The training on managing project preparation for climate change adaptation is a comprehensive five (5) day training program to enable government officials to prepare fundable project proposals for climate change adaptation. The training is organised by Climate Change Asia (CCA), Asian Institute of Technology (AIT).
• Help in understanding climate change realities and risks; how to manage risks, screen for sensitivities, and address key vulnerable groups and areas; how climate change adaptation can be grounded in national development plans and broader national adaptation policy and strategic frameworks.
• Aid in identifying sources of international funding options and develop capacities for accessing those sources.• Build capacity in project preparation for climate change adaptation by illustrating ‘how-to’ methods, tools and processes for use in rigorous adaptation project/program design in line with policies and plans.
• Provide an introduction to Implementation and monitoring of projects.
