CDIA to Hold Training Course on Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience
October 13, 2016
CDIA in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) are set to conduct a training course on “Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience” on 19-22 December 2016 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
This four-day training course aims to improve the climate change and urban resilience knowledge among senior-level managers from cities in Bangladesh, and boost their efforts in integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation into their local strategies.
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 projects; and finally look at options available for financing adaptation projects and methods of accessing climate change finance. Community visit to do a transect walk for the vulnerability assessment will be integrated into the program to internalize understanding of vulnerability, exposure, hazards and risks, and to serve as take-off points for exchange and discussion.
Senior level staff from the cities of Bangladesh are invited to apply. Click here to download the Application Form. For more details, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
