Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Training

Cities and urban areas in developing countries are growing very fast largely contributed by urbanization and allure of jobs by the youthful populations. Majority of the urban dwellers are poor and are vulnerable to climate-induced disruptions. Cities have a responsibility to tackle risks and build resilience through sustainable and inclusive development to spur commerce, culture, science, and production.

Ecosystem Based Adaptation Management Training

The 21st Century has witnessed impacts of Climate Change in many sectors. Having healthy ecosystems play a significant role in providing services to adjust to climate change. Communities have always sought to protect themselves and their valued assets from natural pressures and reduce their vulnerabilities. Recently, increasing interest is being directed towards adaptation approaches that use ecosystem services to build socio-ecological resilience for extreme climatic events.

Integrating Climate Change Adaptation into Development Planning

Developing countries are struggling to adapt to Climate Change (CC) while the international community committed to stemming the gas emissions is wavering due to various self-interests. As lack of strong commitment to arresting this phenomenal problem persists, climate change impacts including drought, floods continue to ravage developing countries unabated resulting in food shortages, increases in vector-borne diseases, infrastructure damage and the degradation of natural resources. This situation is affecting mostly the rural folks who are defenseless with their only hope being governments and organizations that carry out development projects in rural and informal settlements in urban areas.

Climate Change Adaptation Mainstreaming into Development

Development choices today influence the adaptive capacity of people and their governments well into the future. We cannot afford to delay adaptation planning and action. However, many development policies, plans and projects currently do not take climate change into account due to a lack of awareness and clarity on how to effectively develop and integrate adaptation options.
