A great deal of research is beginning to emerge around climate change adaptation in developing countries. As yet, however there appears to be limited capacity to provide adaptation training, especially with a focus on social impacts and planning. Much of the training which does exist takes a technical approach or relates to specific sectors (agriculture, water etc.). This query response has identified those training centres and courses deemed most relevant to the target audience. In addition, it provides links to some of the more important multilateral agency capacity building initiatives and to a selection of online training material which may be of use.
This report gives a brief overview of the work of the training centres identified and, where available, information on specific short courses, including course content, location, dates, fees, and contact details.
