The climate change workshop aims to enhance understanding of climate change impacts on biodiversity as well as the role that biodiversity and ecosystem services can play in supporting climate change adaptation.
This five-day training of trainers workshop is designed for conservationists with limited experience engaging with issues on climate change and ecosystem services interactions with biodiversity locally, nationally and internationally.
The workshop participants assess the climate change related issues relevant to their work in biodiversity, identify needs and then evaluate appropriate responses. Participants also develop an action plan to implement within 12 to 18 months after the training workshop.
Applicants to this training workshop need to demonstrate prior experience with training local stakeholders and how skills gained will be utilised after the workshop.
