CDIA Kicks Off Virtual Training on Cities and Climate Change
June 28, 2020
Last week, the CDIA team has begun a training program to improve their capacity to help cities develop low-carbon and climate resilient infrastructure projects.
The virtual training will consist of 11 sessions from 22 June to 23 July 2020. Each session will last between 1.5 to 2 hours.
Through discussions and practical exercises, the training program will improve the CDIA core team’s knowledge of how climate change affects infrastructure development projects in Asia Pacific cities. It will also enable a deeper understanding of key concepts and effective integration of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures into project design.
CDIA also expects the program to further help their team align its work with the requirements of downstream financiers like the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Agence Francaise de Developpement (AFD).
Finally, the program will make available training materials for later use by CDIA and its beneficiary cities.
The virtual training is part of a package of interventions led by Acclimatise with support from AFD and Expertise France to help CDIA mainstream climate change in its work.
