Announcement: Training on "Managing Project Preparation for Climate Change Adaptation

A comprehensive three days training program to enable government officials to prepare

fundable project proposals for climate change adaptation. The training is offered jointly by The Climate Change Asia (CCA), Asian Institute of Technology and USAID (through their Adapt Asia-Pacific Project).

The objectives of the course are:

·      help in understanding climate change realities and risks; how to manage risks, screen for sensitivities, and address key vulnerable groups and areas; how climate change adaptation can be grounded in national development plans and broader national adaptation policy and strategic frameworks.

·      aid in identifying sources of international funding options and develop capacities for accessing those sources.

·      build capacity in project preparation for climate change adaptation by illustrating 'how-to' methods, tools and processes for use in rigorous adaptation project/program design in line with policies and plans.

·      provide an introduction to Implementation and monitoring of projects.

Organizer: The Climate Change Asia (CCA) at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) aims to meet the capacity building needs in the Asia Pacific region, in line with the Paris Agreement and 2030 Development Agenda. The overall goal of the CCA Program is to "assist countries to meet, and even surpass, the targets outlined in their INDCs by enhancing national capacities to meet diverse but specific needs—technical, institutional, and policy-related". The Program has two broad outputs. First, to build capacities of government officials, private sector managers, NGOs and other key actors in the region in identifying and managing climate change responses, over the next five years, consistent with nationally determined contributions. Second, to translate these enhanced capacities into on-the-ground action, by equipping countries with the knowledge and skills required to prepare, secure financing for, and implement 'bankable' climate change mitigation and adaptation projects.


Target participants: The training is open to government officials that manage project proposal and development from participants from South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka)

Venue: Ozo Hotel, No. 36-38, Clifford Place, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Course Fee: USD 1,500 per participant. The course fee would include the course material as well as refreshments and lunch during the training. Participants are expected to make their own flight and accommodation arrangements.

Deadline for Registration: 15th September, 2016
