City Climate Finance Training in Tangier successful

28 July 2016

On July 19th, during the MEDCOP Climat in Tangier, I4CE and FMDV launched the first “City Climate Finance Training (CCFT)”workshop.

Part of the Local programme, CCFT aims at strengthening the capacity of local stakeholders to formalize resilient urban projects and mobilize financial resources for their implementation.

Through 3 complementary workshops, it provides the required tools to create an enabling environment for funding the fight against climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy. The next session will be held in September in Rabat and the final one during the COP22 in Marrakech.

The first workshop focused on raising awareness on the impacts of climate change at the local level. It gathered over 50 participants representing about 30 local authorities from Morocco and Tunisia and attracted over 20 speakers from the Mediterranean area.

“Working together with diverse cities and experts on the funding mechanisms of projects is good to build our competences” said one of the participants.

CCFT receives support from Climate KIC and GIZ.
