As part of its Cities and Climate Change Training Series, CDIA is set to conduct a training course on “Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience” on 8-10 August 2016 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

This three-day training course aims to improve the climate change and urban resilience knowledge among senior-level city managers and boost their efforts in integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation into their local strategies. In particular, the training course seeks to enable them to understand urban development and climate change linkages; learn financing options for mitigation and adaptation measures, and collaborate with peers and local and international experts.

The course has six modules. First, it will provide tools and techniques for assessing climate change impacts and vulnerabilities; present a framework for identification, evaluation, selection, and implementation of climate adaptation strategies, programs and projects; and finally look at options available for financing adaptation projects and methods of accessing climate change finance. Technical site visits in Dhaka will also be integrated into the program to provide examples of structural and non-structural measures, and as take-off points for exchange and discussions.

Senior level staff from the cities of Bangladesh are invited to apply. For more details, email riadadh.hossain@cdia.asia.
