The Commonwealth Climate Finance Essentials E-learning Course is an online course which builds on the extensive experience of the Commonwealth Climate Finance Access Hub to help small states, Least Developed Countries, and other vulnerable countries unlock available climate finance.

Government officials and experts can use the course to better understand complex areas, such as the climate finance landscape, the compliance requirements set by major funders, the financial requisites for accessing funding and the specific needs of vulnerable groups.

Crucially, the course introduces officials to the core elements needed to write a successful application for securing climate finance for projects. It also unpacks the use of innovative tools, such as earth observation data, to improve project rationale and navigate red tape.

The course is part of a package of resources developed by the Commonwealth Secretariat to support its 56 member countries in tackling the global climate crisis.
