Get to know basic concepts and approaches as well as good practices in climate change adaptation. Learn hands-on about methods and tools along the project cycle that help us to adapt our projects to changing environmental conditions.
The latest IPCC report makes it clear that at least temporary global warming above 1.5 degrees can no longer be prevented. We are urgently required to prepare for this situation. Because the predicted warming will have a significant impact on the life of the people living in the Global South and thus on the work of our project partners: whether in agriculture, in coastal regions, in water or energy supply or due to increasing weather extremes and disasters. To support you in this enormous challenge, we cordially invite you to a workshop on „Climate proofing“. During the workshop, we will get to know basic concepts and approaches as well as good practices in climate change adaptation. We will learn hands-on about methods and tools along the project cycle that help us to adapt our projects to changing environmental conditions.
11:30 – 12:45: Introduction to climate change adaptation: concepts and key approaches

15:30 – 17:00: Climate change integration in project cycle: Tools and Practices (cont.)
