Making Climate Finance Work for Africa: Using NDCs to leverage Climate Relevant Innovation System Builders (CRIBS): Training Brief 2: Using CRIBS (Climate Relevant Innovation-system Builders) to Implement NDCs

CRIBs are institutions that can be established in developing countries to act as key platforms for developing innovation systems around nationally appropriate climate technologies. CRIBs will create capacity to understand existing local capacities and gaps in capacities, identify opportunities to connect actors up across projects and programmes and sectors and linking up with and understanding technology users. CRIBs can ensure a nationally determined, needs based approach; fuelling green growth, de-risking innovation, informing enabling policy environments, engaging national stakeholders and mainstreaming a focus on women, youth and other marginalised groups.
