What is covered?

We have distilled our deep project design expertise into a series of short courses. These courses are designed to equip you with the tools necessary to make your own successful project preparations to access climate finance from the major climate funds. The funds covered include but not limited to: the Green Climate Fund (GCF), Global Environment Facility (GEF), Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) Facility and Adaptation Fund.

Who will benefit from this course?

Our courses are intended for mid-level professionals working in NGOs, UN agencies, bilateral organisations, development banks, and local or country government officials.

Our goals are simple: We want to make climate finance more accessible and improve the quality of projects being submitted to the climate funds. 

Why E Co. institute?

For over 20 years, our team of specialist consultants have worked closely on projects with international governments, multilateral development banks and local communities across Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia. 

Through multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral market assessments, strategy development and project formulation, our work has mobilised over USD $1 billion of climate finance from global climate funds, including the Green Climate Fund, Global Environment Facility and the Adaptation Fund.

E Co. institute enables us to share this experience and expertise with stakeholders all over the world and increase the number of bankable projects submitted to climate funds.
