We offer Green Business Development training that supports individuals to access solar, green houses, compost, organic pesticides, low cost irrigation technologies, water harvesting tanks and energy efficient technologies.

 

• Climate Related Financing
We offer climate related financing through our Shared Action Fund by developing and distributing green loan products that address the impacts of climate change including Adaptation Loans that offer financing and technical assistance for clients who want to invest to be more resilient in the face of expected climate impacts, and Mitigation Loans that target emission reducing investments.

 

• Community Climate Learning Center
We will establish a Community Climate Learning Center in Nakivale Refugee Settlement that promotes diversity and inclusiveness among the various refugee nationalities, ethnic groups and host communities while building their knowledge and skills to become climate leaders.
