This course aims to build the capacity of professionals to manage risks associated with climate variability, change, and extremes. It builds upon the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center’s two decades of experience in disaster management, facilitating regional cooperation and building capacities of disaster management institutions at all government levels, disaster management practitioners and communities, and a decade of experience in institutionalizing climate information applications for disaster mitigation. It incorporates case studies and sectoral examples from ADPC’s climate risk management programs and projects all over Asia.
Upon completing the course, participants will 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.
