E-Learning: Certified Expert for Climate & Renewable Energy Finance and Climate Adaptation Finance

In today’s rapidly changing world, it is of paramount importance for climate finance stakeholders to stay abreast of recent developments in the field. The Paris Agreement agreed in November 2015 marks the beginning of a new era with the focus shifting from finding a consensus on the common goals to realizing jointly agreed goals. “Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development” (Article 2c of the Paris Agreement) will require a significant increase in funding – with new instruments and approaches required to mobilize a broad range of investors and to achieve scalability in financing climate action.

At the same time, climate change will have a profound impact on countries and economies, to which they must react. Most of these response measures – adaptation measures – will require investments. There is a tremendous spectrum from small enterprises to corporates up to larger private or public infrastructure projects seeking and spending climate adaptation finance.

To enable the necessary capacity development among climate finance professionals, who must often conduct their professional development while maintaining their daily work, the Centre has extended its training portfolio with two comprehensive e-learning courses:

The concept and content of the two courses were developed by Centre Experts, who also directly and personally support the participants throughout the 6-month courses, e.g. via the online Forum.

The flexible part-time training concept is implemented through the training platform Frankfurt School Development Finance e-Campus. If you wish to be certified from Frankfurt School for the above courses (each 6 ECTS credits) you have the opportunity to take the final exam (on-site in person) at the end of the course. Frankfurt School already has an extensive network of partner institutions hosting our final exam around the Globe.
