Capacity Building

Impulsouth aims to equip young climate leaders with skills and capacities to develop, implement and report progress on national climate action. It offers a six month certified online course for 84 young climate professionals from the public, private and civil society sectors in Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Madagascar, Niger, Uganda and Zambia. By the end of the course, participants will propose a climate initiative, eligible for being supported technically and financially on Impusouth’s Solutions Lab.

The first cohorts of the training course were implemented in Latin American from January to June and in Africa from April to September during 2022. In 2023, one cohort with 40 students from Africa and 4 from LAC will be held.

E-learning course on climate leadership implemented by FLACSO Ecuador in Latin America and UNU-VIE in Africa.

Addressed to:

  • Young professionals from 18 to 40 years old
  • Residents of Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Niger, Madagascar, Uganda and Zambia
  • With specific proposals to support climate solutions in their countries.

Young professionals from Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Niger, Madagascar, Uganda and Zambia, who are already active in the climate agenda and seek to develop their leadership skills, were selected for this course. During six months, participants will improve their skills in climate governance, innovation, monitoring and reporting, financing, and project development. At the end of the training, they will be able to apply for a Solutions Lab to access resources to support the implementation of a climate project in their countries. During the process, cooperation between participants from different sectors and from the above mentioned countries will be encouraged.

You can find here the teaching guides for the course in Spanish, English and French.
