How We Do It
Comprehensive Training Programmes
Developed by a diverse team of experts, our training programmes ensure hands-on, practical training designed to capacitate participants with an extensive set of methodologies, techniques, and know-how to advance climate action.
Mentoring and Post-training Follow-up
Offered in conjunction with training programmes, one-to-one sessions with experts and online forums provide participants with the possibility to get direct feedback and coaching from experienced professionals on how to move climate action plans or project proposals forward.
Technical and Policy Advice
We support national adaptation planning and climate mitigation through technical and policy advice in accordance with the specific needs of each country. This includes supporting the development of monitoring and evaluation tools.
Development of Knowledge Products
To complement our training programmes and mentoring services, we develop user-friendly outreach materials such as the “Beginner’s Guide to the Climate Change Mitigation Funding” describing policies and project cycles of selected international financial institutions; and a booklet on “Making the Climate Change Argument: Tips & Tricks on Writing a Winning Proposal” (see here) .
We organise events and activities with the aim to facilitate dialogue and knowledge exchange between stakeholders. For example, we are a core technical partner to the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN), contributing as an organiser and moderator of several sessions of APAN´s Asia Pacific Adaptation Forum, held every two years.

Youth Energy Academy
The Youth Energy Academy is a unique and disruptive training programme brought to AIT for the first time in October 2019 with the support of the Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung Foundation. The programme aimed to equip young people with the hard and soft tools to start their own decentralized renewable energy projects. A second edition is currently under planning.
From 2015-2018, AIT RRC.AP has engaged with policy and technical research projects informing strategies to promote the application and transfer of low-carbon technologies (LCT) to industry. In these efforts AIT has supported various capacity building efforts engaging stakeholders from government and the private sector.
