Webinar: Climate Finance 2021 – Introduction to the German International Climate Initiative (IKI)

Climate Finance is becoming increasingly relevant for Swiss NGO working on Climate change and DRR as additional financing source. The Climate Finance Webinar Series supports NGOs to better understand the current climate finance landscape and access criteria of different climate funds. While last year’s webinar in August 2020 (see link) mainly focused on the Green Climate Fund, in the upcoming event we will put an emphasis on the German International Climate Initiative (IKI).​

Workshop Lead: Thomas Hirsch (Climate and Development Advice) will share his profound knowledge of the international finance architecture and the specific IKI requirements. He has 20 years of professional experience in international politics, development cooperation and environmental science and has been part of the IKI project assessment commission.​

Facilitation: Maya Wolfensberger (Advisor Climate Change at Helvetas)
