Training Course

04-05 Mar 2013

In this course, you will learn the basics for developing economically viable climate-resilient plans. The course starts with a review of the scientific consensus on changes in climate patterns and projections to the future, and explains the rationale for countries to develop climate-resilient plans that will help them to move away from a business-as-usual development path. The course continues with a description of a How-to Framework for Climate-Resilient Development Plans, which consists of an introductory guide to: -Frame the adaptation problem and make it a challenge that can be realistically addressed; -Identify relevant climate risks and impacts; -Identify the range of adaptation options available; -Estimate what it will cost to adapt to climate change; -Prioritize adaptation measures.
