Resources and Training
The Development Coordination Division (DCD) have launched its first E-learning platform with courses aimed at building the capacity of stakeholders to access Climate Finance.
The E-learning platform intends to train stakeholders on various topics on MFEM operations and project development. It has a particular focus on MFEM’s grant award procedures, climate rationale, understanding and applying environmental, social and gender considerations when formulating and implementing climate change projects.
The E-Learning platform will host a catalogue of courses with new courses expected to be introduced on a regular basis.
We welcome you to the MFEM E-learning platform.
The Development Coordination Division regularly received and disseminates a range of publications for our direct and indirect stakeholders on a diversity of issues – for the general public to industry experts.

The Lowry Institute
The Lowy Institute is an independent international policy think tank. Its objective is to generate new ideas and dialogue on international developments and Australia’s role in the world. Its mandate is broad. It ranges across all the dimensions of international policy debate in Australia - economic, political and strategic – and it is not limited to a particular geographic region.
The Institute has two core tasks:
To produce distinctive research and fresh policy options for Australia’s international policy. The Institute seeks to throw fresh light on issues of relevance to Australia through rigorous research, and then to generate workable policy ideas. The Institute also seeks to contribute to the wider international debate. We believe Australia can make a significant contribution to the global dialogue.
To promote wide discussion of Australia’s role in the world. This is the Institute’s other vital task: to provide an accessible and high-quality forum for discussion of Australian foreign policy and international relations, through debates, seminars, lectures, dialogues and conferences.
The Institute was established in April 2003 as the result of a gift by Mr Frank Lowy AC, one of Australia’s leading businessmen, to mark the 50th anniversary of his arrival in Australia.
The Institute is non-partisan and is home to a range of policy ideas. Its staff and Fellows speak with individual voices. The Institute draws on the insights and experience of policy practitioners, academic experts and business people. It also seeks to bring new voices and external viewpoints into the Australian debate, for example through an active program of internships for young people and the involvement of members of the Australian diaspora.

The Center for Global Development
The Center for Global Development works to reduce global poverty and inequality through rigorous research and active engagement with the policy community to make the world a more prosperous, just, and safe place for us all. A nimble, independent, nonpartisan, and nonprofit think tank, CGD combines world-class research with policy analysis and innovative communications to turn ideas into action.
In the course of coordinating and implementing development and climate projects, the Development Coordination Division and its partners produce reports, proposals, agreements, and other documents that facilitate and formalise working arrangements and ensure that activities are done properly and smoothly.
