The UNU Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP) regularly organizes intensive 4-week postgraduate programmes on Building Resilience to Climate Change, developed under the framework of the University Network for Climate and Ecosystems Change Adaptation Research (UN-CECAR).
UN-CECAR is a collaborative initiative of more than 20 leading universities across Asia, committed to develop post graduate educational and research programmes on climate and ecosystems change, adaptation and sustainability science. UNU-ISP acts as the UN-CECAR Secretariat.
The courses cover a range of issues on sustainability and adaptation to climate and ecosystems change. Topics include climate and atmospheric science, impacts assessment, climate and society, ecosystems resilience, risk and uncertainty, integrated solutions for mitigation and adaptation, mainstreaming adaptation into development planning and community-based adaptation. Students receive practical training in the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and in down-scaling rainfall forecasts.
