Dear AidWorkers Network Colleagues,
CSDi is announcing the May 1 launch of a module of eight online field courses on Integrating DRR, Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change, and Rural Development.
These courses begin by introducing basic climate change concepts, participatory disaster preparedness, and mainstreaming them with rural development—and develop as participants identify local community vulnerabilities, identify risks and hazards, investigate appropriate solutions, design participatory M&E plans, develop full projects, launch and manage them.
Complete information and course syllabi:
