Applications call for the NDC Financing Fellowship Programme 2020

Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) are central to achieving the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement. NDCs embody each country’s efforts to address climate change. NDC-FFP, funded by the International Development Research Institute (IDRC), supports, promotes and trains exceptional individuals from policy and research who are interested in further:

  • Enhancing their knowledge and skills on financing NDCs.
  • To build leadership in NDC finance for enhanced sharing of knowledge and good practices.
  • Contributing to webinars, blogs, publications, reports and journal articles on NDC finance.
  • Continuous online discussions, network opportunities and access to international professional networks of peers and leaders in climate change and finance.
  • Promote dialogue and peer learning among researchers and policymakers on best practices on NDC financing.


Fellows are offered on-site and online training, webinars, workshops, and events in Frankfurt (Germany) and Nairobi (Kenya). The program aims to empower the participants to learn about different ways to finance commitments mentioned in the submitted NDCs, to meet and exchange with other fellows and exchange with policy experts and researchers working in the field of NDC finance. The NDC Financing Fellowship Programmes divided into two cohorts, the first in English (September 2020 – August 2021) and the second in French (March 2021 – February 2022). In June 2022, there will be a joint final Summit.
