Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC)
On 27 February 2018 (12:30 PM - 1:30 PM CET), Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici is holding webinar on "Informing and Supporting Climate Policy: The European Topic Centre on Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation".
The aim of the course is to develop participants’ skills in preparing proposals for low carbon climate resilient development in areas such as clean energy access, energy efficiency and adaptation to climate change so that they can mobilise climate finance, particularly from the Green Climate Fund (GCF), and catalyse the deployment of climate change solutions in developing countries.
