Climate Change Adaptation Fundamentals

Facilitator: Dr. Stewart Cohen

Professionals working in British Columbia are increasingly aware of the need for adaptation strategies but may be unsure where to start. This 4-module, instructor-led online course will provide learners from a range of disciplinary and professional backgrounds with an overview of the current state of knowledge on climate science and a grounding in the core concepts supporting climate change adaptation. Participants will gain an understanding of regional climate trends, risks, and their implications for human and natural systems, the role of adaptation in risk reduction, and an understanding of how science-based information and tools can be used in strategic adaptation planning.

Participants in this course can expect approximately 10 hours (2.5 hours per week) of learner effort.
