Adaptation Training in South Africa

Another instalment of the Training Course for Integrating Adaptation into Development Planning was conducted in South Africa from 13 to 16 January, and very well received. 26 participants studied an extended version of the basic training, covering topics such as assessing vulnerability, identifying adaptation options, and selecting adaptation measures. The course also included an exchange of personal experiences and an introduction to monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

More details about the content and reception of the course can be found in the training documentation. Modules on several other adaptation-related topics are available. Details and materials can be found in the Knowledge section. Consult the Training Cookbook for instructions on how to design training courses tailored to your audience and needs, or head to the Exchange section for reports from other trainings conducted in the past.
