New training course 'Pathways to climate change adaptation: the case of Small Island Developing States'

This free online course by the University of Geneva 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.

Get started with the training here.

If anyone has other online courses to recommend I would be glad they share them here ;)

Hello and thank you Fannie for indicating that course.

Manu,

Besides the Turn down the Heat  mentioned above, that I was a good way to read the report from the WB, I followed (and enjoyed) last year two short courses on sustainability with strong chapters on/relation to climate change :

- Introduction to sustainability (DR. Jonathna tomkin, university of Illinois, 8 weeks) : https://www.coursera.org/learn/sustainability

- The Age of Sustainable Development (Dr. J. Sachs, University of Columbia, 14 weeks): https://www.coursera.org/learn/sustainable-development

For MOOC , beisdes the platforms already mentioned, I also consult the Fun platform (courses in French) : https://www.france-universite-numerique-mooc.fr/
