Event Description

Dear DevelopmentCrossing Colleagues,

CSDi is launching a summer quarter diploma module of four online field courses on Community Based Adaptation to Climate Change. These courses begin by introducing basic climate change concepts, and develop as participants identify local community vulnerabilities, investigate solutions, develop full projects, launch and manage them.

Complete information and course syllabi:

Online course participants are using our courses to develop on-the-ground projects with real communities; students from 129 different countries and 380 organizations have developed projects that address over 200 different kinds of development challenges and are impacting over 200,000 people.

CSDi provides the following course/continuing learning resources
All learning resources and course materials are freely downloadable from the course site and include:
-200 manuals & field guides of development activities
-300 Community Based Adaptation for Climate Change field activities
-Community-based training guides for 150 development activities
-Scholarship opportunities for citizens of developing nations

Course Outputs. Students produce and circulate activity and outcome documents on their field projects with colleagues, donors, and North/South project partners. These include project management documents, proposals, and case studies.

To learn more about these Community Based Adaptation field projects, the students, the projects they developed, and about their communities, be sure and read our compilation of Adaptation/Island/Water/Forest projects.
