Dear UN CC:Learners,

If you are particularly interested on the subject of climate change

adaptation, you might want to take a look at this free Massive Open

Developing States

26 Jan 2015 - 28 Feb 2015

This MOOC provides an overview of climate change adaptation in Small

Island Developing States (SIDS). The course looks at how each country

can assess its specific vulnerabilities to climate change, and the

tools available for protecting the well-being, economy, and

environment of its citizens.  At the end of the course participants

will be able to:

-Explain why countries will have to adapt to climate change and

provide examples of what this could look like

-Explain why Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are particularly

vulnerable to climate change.

-Outline how to analyse climate risks and discuss why some countries

are more vulnerable than others.

-Discuss how adaptation can contribute to sustainable development goals.
