Learning Events

SEARCA’s Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation (CChAM) Framework for Agriculture and Natural Resource Management in Southeast Asia aims to contribute to an enabled environment for rural poverty reduction and food security via built capacities and institutions that ensure climate change resiliency in agricultural production and sustainable natural resource management in Southeast Asia.

The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) and the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU) are now accepting applications from those interested to enroll in their joint Online Course on Responding to Climate Risks in Agriculture and Natural Resource Management (RCRANRM) scheduled on 5 October 2013 to 10 January 2014.

The online course is geared towards those about to start active involvement in, or are relatively new at implementing, climate change adaptation initiatives in the agriculture and natural resources sector. Lecturers include members of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) such as Dr. Rodel D. Lasco and Dr. Rex Victor O. Cruz from the Philippines and Dr. Rizaldi Boer from Indonesia.

Second Training-Workshop for ASEAN Multisectoral Framework on Climate Change (AFCC) Sectoral Working Groups: Integrating Climate Change Adaptation into Development Plans and Investments
24-26 September 2013
RECOFTC, Bangkok, Thailand

Description:

Adapting to climate change is a rapidly growing challenge, particularly for developing countries such that many development policies, plans and projects currently do not take climate change into account due to a lack of awareness and clarity on how to effectively develop and integrate adaptation options. This three-day workshop is based on the Policy Guidance on Integrating Climate Change Adaptation into Development Cooperation (OECD Guidance) developed by the OECD’s Environment Policy Committee (EPOC) and its Development Assistance Committee (DAC) with the aim of promoting understanding and identifying appropriate approaches and practical ways for integrating climate change adaptation into development policies and activities at national, sectorial, project and local levels.

Workshop | Vulnerability, Impact, and Adaptation Assessment for Climate Change: Approaches, Methods, and Tools
10-12 July 2013
Hanoi, Vietnam

Description:

A three-day workshop that aimed to familiarize focal climate change adaptation (CCA) points in the region with vulnerability, impact, and adaptation assessment (VIA) tools applied in planning CCA initiatives that address the projected impacts of climate change in the agricultural and natural resource management (NRM) sectors of their respective areas. These CCA focal points are involved in the formulation of national communication plans, national adaptation plans, or developing adaptation projects. The forum-workshop presented and demonstrated methodological approaches for assessing capacities and gaps to carry out vulnerability, impacts and adaptation assessment. In the process, it provided a platform for sharing of appropriate and replicable practices and tools for proper VIA towards shared understanding and consolidation of knowledge and experiences.
