2015 Oxford Adaptation Academy for Leaders & Practitioners

Written by , posted on Friday February 20 2015(4 years ago)

Jointly organised by the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at Oxford University and the Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP), the Academy brings climate practitioners together to discuss the links between climate science, vulnerability and decision making. Now in its 6th year, previous participants include representatives from the UNFCCC, Asian/African/Inter-American Development Banks, NGOs and national governments.

This year the Adaptation Academy Programme will include three one-day workshops: Financing Sustainability; Uncertainty and Risk; and Urban Planning.  Each workshop will be structured as an open forum between participants and facilitators. In this way the course aims to build a genuine ‘community of practice.
