The governance of climate change finance team for Asia-Pacific partners with a number of national, regional and international institutions to develop climate change finance curriculum, Electronic Learning Modules on Climate Change Finance linking Climate Policies and Public Finance and to conduct face-to-face training roll-out session.
Apart from the generic regional learning modules on climate change finance, a pilot and tailor-made module for Cambodia was developed based on its national context, translated into Khmer and launched in Phnom Penh at the Climate Change Finance Training for trainers workshop in November 2015 in partnership with EFI, Ministry of Finance.
In 2016, the programme is partnering with Fiscal Policy Research Institute (FPRI), in affiliation with Ministry of Finance and Thailand’s Development Research Institute (TDRI) developing a tailored module for Thailand.
To ensure the sustainability of this capacity and skills building initiative, the programme launched a Regional Peer Learning Network (RPLN).
In January 2016, the programme co-hosted a short course training on Climate Change Finance with ICCCAD in Dhaka with members (government officials) of the RPLN from Asia-Pacific countries.
