Climate Finance

Programme Overview

Climate change is a reality and the world as we have known it for the last 10 millennia will change dramatically in the coming decades with a more turbulent climate (more droughts, floods, tornadoes, etc.) a rise in the level of seas (due to thermal expansion and the melting of glaciers) in addition to the phenomenon of ocean acidification. All these natural changes and phenomena will have disastrous consequences on humans, animals and the entire balance of the planet.

These changes are due to human activity which has begun to have a significant impact on the planet’s climate and its various ecosystems. Some scientists have said that the planet has entered a new era called the Anthropocene which began during the great acceleration in the 1950s with more wealth, more energy consumption but also more damage to the planet. Climate change is not limited to environmental challenges but its impact is extended to demographic, economic and social aspects which will aggravate levels of poverty and famine, health issues, inequalities, access to clean water and sanitation and the equitable distribution of wealth among members of society.

In this context, financial institutions must put in place mechanisms for governance and management of climate risks. At the same time, they are required to structure suitable offers to contribute to global climate action efforts. This programme provides staff of financial institutions with the necessary knowledge and skills related to climate finance.
