Practitioner Training and targeted capacity-building are important pillars of the current phase of the SACFP. The SACFP, in partnership with the University of Cape Town, is facilitating a formal online course for a selection of practitioners from various financial institutions.
The course includes teams from six Southern African institutions, including those recently accredited to the Green Climate Fund, as well as yet to be accredited.

The six teams include:
