Training course on Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience (UCCAR)

AIT and USAID (through their Adapt Asia-Pacific Project) will be conducting a training course on "Urban Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience (UCCAR)" for participants from Asia. This is a "Train-the-Trainer" course, developed by USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific in collaboration with the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii.

The UCCAR course aims to improve climate change knowledge among mid- to senior-level professionals working in urban and infrastructure planning and, in turn, help them design better adaptation projects. This seven-module, five-day course starts with an introduction to climate change and climate change adaptation; provides tools and techniques for assessing climate change impacts and vulnerabilities; presents a framework for identification, evaluation, selection, and implementation of climate adaptation strategies, programs and projects; and finally looks at the options available for financing adaptation projects and methods of accessing climate change finance.

There are FIVE participant slots available for AIT delegates to attend this training course. Details of the course are:

Dates: 07-11 March, 2016

Time:  Full day (09:00 - 16:00h)

Venue: B-108, AIT Conference Center

Cost: Free (lunch and coffee will be provided)

If you are interested in participating in this course, please send your CVs (1-2 pages should be fine) to Dr. Victor Shinde (victorshinde@ait.asia), along with a short motivation statement (max 1 page) latest by 14th February, 2016. Because this is a Train-the-Trainer course, we are looking for participants who are (or likely to be) involved in relevant capacity building activities as part of their work profile.
