Short course – “Mainstreaming climate change adaptation into development planning”

Daniel Etongo, Jérôme Harlay and Nuette Gordon conducted a ‘Mainstreaming climate change adaptation into development planning’ short course from 22-24 July. It sought to equip participants with knowledge on climate change adaptation and mainstreaming along a continuum: terrestrial, coastal/estuary and ocean.

 

 

Key topics covered were: (I) Identifying and selecting adaptation options; (ii) Linking adaptation and development planning; (iii)  Barriers to climate change adaptation; and (iv) How to avoid maladaptation. During the course, the  eight  participants from governmental and non-governmental entities also undertook a vulnerability assessment in mangrove ecosystems and smallholder agricultural systems in Seychelles.
