Nature-based Solutions for the local communities

October, 2021

This e-learning course on NbS is designed to help local officers in vulnerable countries learn how to integrate NbS into their policy/financing processes with respect to climate change adaptation, disaster risk management, and other issues.

Building resilience to compound and cascading disaster risks

December, 2021

Climate change will lead to more severe weather-related hazards, so there is now an urgent need to deal with compound and cascading disasters. This e-learning course targets local/national government officers and will help them develop the capacity to implement specific measures to build resilience against such disasters.

Utilize a climate projection tool “ClimoCast” for the NAP process

March, 2022

CMIP6 Climate Viewer “ClimoCast” is an innovative tool that makes climate projection possible for everyone. This e-learning course explains how ClimoCast can be used to develop a convincing plan for the NAP process, especially when it comes to financing the implementation of adaptation measures.

Use of the S8 Downscaler (S8DS), A climate downscaling tool to aid climate adaptation planning

March, 2022

This e-learning course will teach users how to utilize the S8 Downscaler (S8DS), a climate downscaling tool that can assist in planning for climate change adaptation. It is a web application based on a Graphic User Interface (GUI) that performs dynamical downscaling and develops climate projection with simple click and drag functions The S8DS aims to support the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process with various integrated features.

Accessing the GCF for Adaptation

March, 2022

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a key source of finance for adaptation projects or programmes, but the arrangements, know-how and skills to access funding can be cumbersome to proponents. This course covers a series of insights, guidance, and experiences regarding accreditation, technology transfer, and project formulation to support improve and accelerate accessing climate finance.
