Climate Finance and Proposal Writing Training - Gaborone, Botswana

12/03/2018 (All day) to 12/07/2018 (All day)

GIZ-ACCRA together with CCARDESA organised a Climate Finance and Proposal Writing Training in December 2018 in Gaborone, Botswana. The idea of the training was to familiarize delegates from Ministries of Agriculture and Ministries of Planning/Finance with international climate finance mechanisms, and to capacitate them to write good proposals in order to access funding for their agricultural development projects. The training highlighted the most important elements that proposals for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) have to meet. The GCF was used as example because of its complexity and highly demanding writing skills, that are needed for all sorts of project proposals.

Following is the agenda of the training and the presentations.
