There is often limited knowledge and understanding of climate change adaptation concepts and its implications at local level. Climate change is a rather new phenomenon with potential risks but limited reaction of policy makers. The capacities for adaptive planning, informed policy development and climate proof programming are often weak. This course on climate change adaptation in agriculture and natural resource management will help you to understand climate change adaptation concepts, be able to effectively and meaningfully contribute to the debate on climate change adaptation, either in the policy process and/or in providing knowledge to the policy process and apply the concepts of climate change adaptation within the context of sustainable development.
