Online Training (OT)

The Green Banking Online Training is a professional training that can be completed by each participant individually, at any time and from any location. The training is tailored to deliver a comprehensive, general introduction into green finance topics. There are two learning paths available, one specifically for renewable energy finance and one for energy efficiency finance. A Kick-off Workshop in the respective partner country will introduce the participants to the concept of online learning prior to the Online Training. Please take note that attendance at the kick-off workshop is not mandatory.

Throughout the project lifetime of Green Banking MENA, one Online Training with an upstream Kick-off Workshop in the respective partner countries will be realised with up to 10 scholarships for participants from each country.


The Online Training is designed to offer insight information into Green Energy and Climate Finance. It also offers basics on financial evaluation and support mechanisms as selectable courses for those participants who are not familiar with these topics. These contents are complemented with political and market frameworks and case studies from the target countries of the Green Banking MENA project.
