Training on how to prepare bankable projects for financing climate change adaptation in transboundary basins

21 - 23 June 2017

Dakar, Senegal

The training will be held on 21-23 June 2017 in Dakar, Senegal, hosted by the Senegal River Basin Development Authority (OMVS). It is jointly organized by the secretariat of the 1992 UNECE Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes (Helsinki Water Convention) in cooperation with the African Water Facility (AWF/AfDB), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the International Network of Basin Organizations (INBO), the World Bank, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

The main objective of the training will be to enhance the capacity of representatives of transboundary basins and equip them with knowledge and skills required to develop bankable transboundary water and climate change adaptation projects. It will raise awareness on mechanisms and conditions of various relevant donors providing funds for climate change adaptation and transboundary cooperation, improve knowledge on preparation and submission of project proposals, support implementation of concrete measures contained in adaptation strategies and promote exchange of experience between basins from two regions of the world.

The working languages will be English and French.

The meeting is by invitation only.
