Course on: 
We would like to draw your attention to the possbility of following our course on Climate change adaption in agriculture and natural resources management: policy making and programming for sustainable development  which will be held in East Africa from  5 March – 16 March 2012.

“Changing climate and weather patterns are predicted to have severe negative impacts on food production, food security and natural resources in Africa . Climate change adaptation needs to build on the concept of sustainable development.”
This course helps participants to ‘translate’ impacts of climate change into practical solutions and climate informed policies. It uses a multi-disciplinary approach to link climate change research to policy. The course introduces the latest views on climate change and innovative practices for local adaptation. It covers concepts such as vulnerability, uncertainty, policy making processes, conflict management and negotiation. It also introduces tools for analysis, social learning and multi-stakeholder engagement. The course includes field work and stakeholder dialogues on climate change adaptation for their organisations.
