Over 50% of student-chosen projects in our courses work to solve problems linked with climate change. In response we developed a diploma program of four courses tailored to the needs of those of you helping communities adapt to climate change. This course is the first in the series.

Students leave this course with practical field tools and develop a range of skills: needs assessments, community workshops, and discovering evidence-based adaptation activities. The course is designed to be used as a vehicle to develop a real adaptation project during this course.

Course leaders have gained their development expertise providing face-to-face consulting services to NGOs in the field will also provide you with consulting to ensure your project has a solid beginning.

  • They will help you conduct a participatory needs assessment in your community,

  • develop a preliminary project concept,

  • conduct research on your project to identify evidence based adaptation activities,

  • refine your community-based project and share it with your community, and

  • share your project concept with a potential donor.
