Regional training course on climate risk management: Science, Institutions, and Society
If you're going to Bangkok in April, and want to sharpen your climate risk and disaster management skills, you're in luck! The Asia Disaster Preparedness Center is offering what appears to be a comprehensive course. By the time you've completed the two-week curriculum, you should be able to: ... 1) design early warning systems for climate-related risks; 2) design community-based climate risk management, climate forecast applications, and climate change adaptation projects, and 3) develop tools to mainstream climate risk management practices into development programs and policies.
