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 a second cohort will be launched for African countries.

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.
