Press Release: OneWorld hosts climate finance course in Africa
In partnership with AfDB, OneWorld designed and facilitated an online training course for participants across Africa.
From African Development Bank Press release:
Seventy-four trainees from 26 African countries will join the continent’s community of climate finance experts after successfully completing a training program through the African Development Bank. Eighteen of the 74 graduates who emerged as top achievers qualified as trainers and will continue to build capacity across the continent.
The “training of trainers” program empowered trainees to design proposals that will enable them to access climate finance from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and teaches them to pass on their skills to others. The 120-hour training program was conducted virtually in three languages: English (45 participants), French (19 participants) and Portuguese (10 participants).
