Financing Frameworks for Resilient Growth

Course Overview
This e-learning course provides an introduction to financing frameworks for resilient growth. Financing frameworks are a means to mainstream climate change into public budgets and planning. It is divided into eight modules each of which will take 2 hours (on average) to complete. A short quiz at the end of each module allows you to evaluate if you have gained an understanding of the content. You will need to complete these exercises at the end of each module to move onto the next one. Once all eight modules have been completed individually, you will receive a course completion record.
