The Centre for Coastal Management (CCM) of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), and its partner Nature Today, a non for profit organisation, is offering an instructor-Led short course on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation from September 17th -21st, 2018.
Participants from around the world would provide their own funding to attend the 5-day training to be held at UCC, Ghana.
Countries in Africa and other developing areas of the world are most vulnerable to these impacts of Climate Change because their economies are highly dependent on climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture and fisheries. The course advances participants’ knowledge on the effect of climate change in relation to key ecosystems in coastal areas. It emphasizes how the ecosystems and the livelihood activities associated with them can be evaluated for the purposes of adapting to and mitigating the impact of climate change. The course was developed with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID/Ghana) under the Fisheries and Coastal Management Capacity Building project
Interested candidates can apply for admission to the training via the website
After reviewing and accepting the application, CCM will send the applicant an admission letter and instructions on how to continue.
