This course compiles knowledge and lessons learned during the design and implementation of investment plans funded through the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) Clean Technology Fund (CTF) and the Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program in Low Income Countries (SREP). The objective of this course is to teach policymakers, planners and climate change practitioners how to design and finance strategic plans and programs for low emissions development that go beyond a project-by-project approach.
Developing countries are increasingly turning toward low emissions development options not only to achieve greenhouse gas mitigation goals, but also to bolster energy security and spur job creation. This course provides a high-level introduction to the importance and process for crafting low emissions investment plans. The course furthers information on tools and frameworks that will help you structure the planning process, together with discussing the major steps of developing a low emissions investment plan.
Specifically, you will gain insight into the key aspects of:
Each module in the course concludes with a quiz/exercise that tests your learning of each phase in the investment planning process and should take approximately two to two and a half hours to complete.
The main objective of the course is to equip policymakers with best knowledge to draft a low emissions investment plan by:
