This short online course provides an introduction to climate science and modelling and the current understanding of some of the issues surrounding the use of model projections of climate change. The course is a stand-alone, untutored learning experience that can be taken at the convenience of the user. For further information and details on how to register for the course please visit the climateeducation.net website.
Students may progress from this course to Constructing and applying high resolution clim
While CCORAL can be used in the context of all Caribbean countries, currently only the CARICOM countries can be selected individually, providing bespoke information on each. Beyond the initial phase of CCORAL project (focussed on CARICOM), CCORAL can be updated to include bespoke information for all countries in the region.

This animation is an exciting tool to raise awareness of the science and impacts of El Niño and La Niña in Vanuatu and encourage the people of Vanuatu to take early action in preparing for these extreme events.
ConservationTraining is an open and free learning community that offers conservation-based training materials from The Nature Conservancy and our partner organizations.
With over 9,000 users from over 200 countries enrolled, our mission is to share training with our conservation colleagues across the world.
NOAA's Coral Reef Watch Program's satellite data provide current reef environmental conditions to quickly identify areas at risk for coral bleaching, where corals lose the symbiotic algae that give them their distinctive colors. If a coral is severely bleached, disease and partial mortality become likely, and the entire colony may die.
Continuous monitoring of sea surface temperature at global scales provides researchers and stakeholders with tools to understand and better manage the complex interactions
Vanuatu is an archipelago of approximately 80 volcanic islands, with an area of approximately 12,336 square kilometers located off the north-eastern coast of Australia. The island’s population of approximately 221,000 individuals is predominantly rural and relies mostly on agriculture, tourism, raising cattle and offshore financial services (UKFCO, 2011).
With support from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) this Guide focuses on adaptation, mitigation & development. It particularly looks at the relationship between climate change and other development sectors such as agriculture & food security, natural resource management, poverty & vulnerability, governance, health, gender, finance, & low carbon energy.
Asian and Pacific countries continue to suffer disproportionately from disasters caused by natural hazards. Disasters cause death, economic and environmental damage, and severe setbacks for social development. Recent large-scale disasters, including the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan of March 2011, highlight the value of national preparedness for disaster

About the project
The European Union (EU) established the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) in 2007 to strengthen dialogue, exchange of experiences and cooperation on climate change with developing countries most vulnerable to climate change, in particular the Least Developed Countries and the Small altIsland Developing States. GCCA is the main implementing channel for the EU fast start commitments related to climate change adaptation. Under funding approved in 2010, €11.4 million has been allocated to
The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a fund within the framework of the UNFCCC founded as a mechanism to assist developing countries in adaptation and mitigation practices to counter climate change. The GCF is based in the new Songdo district of Incheon, South Korea.
Here you will find an overview of online knowledge platforms that have been set up or assisted by projects funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) (sorted according to topics).
This is to kindly invite you and your focal groups/networks to register and participate via on-line discussion on our “Global Learning Platform”. The platform is part of our 3 year project “Gender in adaptation and low carbon development”, implemented collaboratively between the Secretariat of the Pacific Community, GenderCC (Germany) and Centre for Global Change (Bangladesh).The aim of the platform is to create and advance our knowledge regarding tactics, strategies, tools and ideas of how we can achieve a
The LEG was established by the COP in 2001.The LEG is requested by the COP to provide technical support and advice to the least developed countries (LDCs) on the national adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs) and the LDC work programme, and to provide technical guidance and support to the national adaptation plan (NAP) process.
The LEG meets twice a year and supports LDCs through a variety of modalities that include training workshops, development of guides, tools, technical papers, publications and d
