Netherlands Fellowship Programme for Training course on ‘Integrating climate change in sustainable development’

Going beyond the science of climate change adaptation, the focus of this course is the translation of the policy documents and research into climate-smart adaptation strategies. Participants with an interest to take climate change adaptation further than the paper these policies are written on, are encouraged to apply. The training approach is interactive, with plenary and group work, study assignments, case studies, role-plays and fieldwork. Participants will be able to effectively and meaningfully contribute to the debate on climate change adaptation, either in policy processes or in research; to fuel the debate or to implement climate-smart policies.

Upon completion of the course you will:

  • have a better understanding of climate change, its causes, risks and implications for food security, agriculture and natural resource management;
  • know concepts for adaptation and mitigation;
  • understand climate-smart agriculture and natural resource management;
  • be familiar with vulnerability assessment, coping strategies and sustainable development processes;
  • understand competing claims, indigenous knowledge, conflict management and advocacy in climate change;
  • be able to integrate climate change issues into existing policy processes and rural development strategies.
