About this course
|Type|| Classroom training
Climate change can cause both risks and opportunities in the UK and globally. A climate change risk assessment is a first step in understanding these risks and opportunities at a national, regional or sector scale.
This course provides training in climate change risk assessment and adaptation planning for participants from any organisation or sector interested in undertaking this type of work. It enables policy makers and planners to integrate climate change into their decision-making processes in a robust and transparent way. The course not only covers the theory of risk assessments, but gives practical guidance on how to apply different assessment approaches in climate change adaptation decision-making.
Group exercises are included in the course and this provides outputs that participants can take away with them and develop further in their own time.
