Integrating Climate Risks Information into NAPs
In a world that is looking less likely to stay within 2°C of global warming compared to the pre-industrial levels, individuals need to make choices between a range of possible actions requiring information on past, present and potential future climate conditions. Adapting to climate change requires the development of the best available scientific information about climate trends and their societal impacts.
The course Integrating Climate Risk Information into NAPs shows how to strengthen National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) through appropriate climate information and coordinated policy action, enabling different types of institutions and actors to work together in a collaborative framework, drawing on the resources of the global hydro-meteorological community at large.
What you will learn
