Professional Certificate in Strategic Climate Change Adaptation
16th - 19th May 2016, London, UK
Taking ‘urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts’ is a primary goal for the UN’s Post 2015 Agenda, as announced in the August 2015 Declaration. With the UN’s Climate Change Conference taking place in Paris in November 2015, how to adapt to changing climate conditions has taken centre stage on Government agendas, impacting security and development on a global scale. The ability therefore for stakeholders to plan strategically and adapt to such changes is critical.
A key declaration from the UN notes the centrality of strengthening ‘resilience and adaptive capacity,’ which form core concepts of this programme aimed at advancing participants’ knowledge of adaptation strategies and forming sustainable climate policy.
The course equips participants with knowledge of successful techniques to integrate environmental and sustainability concerns into strategic planning. Through discussions with leading practitioners, participants will gain knowledge of crucial subject matters including disaster risk reduction, international policy and financial strategies to enable them to effectively mainstream climate change adaptation into all areas of development planning.
This is a specialist training course leading to a Level 7 Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Certificate in Management and Leadership. Upon completion of this week-long course and subsequent written tasks, the successful candidate will be awarded a Level 7 CMI certificate in Management & Leadership showing the CMI units achieved. The CMI is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. The professional qualifications offered by the Institute are internationally recognised and sought after.
