Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Training
February 18, 2019 - February 22, 2019| $750
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.
Climate Change effects affect the urban living conditions, infrastructure and interactions in cities over time which compromises social and economic advancement. Adaptation discourses on cities accentuate the use of climate projections to determine future risks and the response strategies needed to build resilience. Whereas climate change mitigation is “generally handled at the national and international level, adaptation is best handled at the local level”.
The course presents the latest knowledge and skills developed by international experts on how to address the implications of climate change for specific urban areas needed by a modern development professional. The course brings out existing policies, practices and plans and gives insights on how to adapt to negative impacts of climate change.
The individual cost for the training workshop is USD 750 for individual participants and USD 650 for groups above 10 participants exclusive of 16% VAT. This covers the training fee, resource materials, and conference package. Participants will be responsible for their own travel expenses and arrangements, such as airport transfers (and visa application, where necessary), food and accommodation, health/accident insurance, and other personal expenses.
The target groups are development practitioners both non-governmental and government staff responsible for planning and climate change adaptation and resilience.
This course is delivered through interactive lectures, case studies, and simulation and aims to provide competency and skills to technical staff to create sustainable and resilient urban areas.
At the end of this training you will be able to:
- Explain modern perspectives about the impacts of climate change on cities and urban areas
- Improve knowledge of disaster risk reduction, global warming, and climate change;
- Use tools and techniques to establish urban priorities and risk-informed development plans
- Acquire evaluative criteria to choose between resilience and adaptation options
- Use a framework for conducting vulnerability assessments ranging from neighborhoods to counties/districts/municipalities
- Carry out resource mobilization and fundraising financing options for urban climate change adaptation and resilience.
