A course on Climate Change Governance will be held from 21 November – 2 December 2011 in Wageningen, the Netherlands. The course builds on experiences in capacity building programmes on climate change adaptation in developing countries in which Wageningen UR collaborates with research institutions and development networks world wide.
In the course climate change adaptation and mitigation are placed within the context of sustainable development and involve complex change processes which require the involvement of different stakeholders such as policy makers, scientists, communities, citizens, farmers, extension workers, media, businesses, etc.
Since climate change is so highly complex and uncertain, an emergent and learning process is required. This course will enable participants to play an active role in the governance of climate change processes. It offers conceptual frameworks to understand climate change, vulnerability and adaptation and mitigation options. It builds skills to apply tools for stakeholder engagement, policy influencing, advocacy and negotiation. The course includes practical field work and development of individual action plans.
If you or your colleagues are interested to participate in this course we would like to encourage you to find funding from your employer or any other sponsoring organisation.
This year there are no scholarships available from the Dutch Government.
