The Africa Sustainability Hub is running a 2 week fully funded internship on 9-20 July for African policymakers on the preparation of Green Climate Fund (GCF) proposals. The GCF is the financial mechanism responsible for funding the implementation of UN climate policy.
Policy makers attending the course are from Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. The Africa Sustainability Hub is hosted at the Africa Centre for Technology Studies (ACTS), and is running the event in partnership with the University of Sussex and the Institute of Climate Change Adaptation.
The course draws on the idea of Climate Relevant Innovation System Builders (CRIBS) developed by researchers associated with the University of Sussex and the Africa Sustainability Hub.
For more on CRIBS, see the blog post and papers developed by David Ockwell and Rob Byrne.
