Starting 26 January : First ISE's MOOC "Pathways to climate change adaptation: the case of Small Island Developing States"

This course provides an overview of climate change adaptation for the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) with a focus on the environmental perspective. It will present the key concepts regarding the issues of adaptation to climate change and the methodological tools needed to analyse challenges faced by SIDS, in order to propose sustainable solutions.

At the end of this course launched by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the University of Geneva (UNIGE) in collaboration with the National Adaptation Planning Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP), participants will be able to:

  1. Explain why countries will have to adapt to climate change and provide examples of what this could look like.
  2. Explain why Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are particularly vulnerable to climate change.
  3. Outline how to analyse climate risks and discuss why some countries are more vulnerable than others.
  4. Discuss how adaptation can contribute to sustainable development goals.
