Integration of climate risk information when planning projects to build resilience for conservation, urban development, and disaster risk reduction (climate proofing) through capacity building workshops for school students, and second-tier officers in related government and non-governmental organizations.

The workshops aims at strengthening institutional and technical capacities for effective climate change management and adaptation, creating awareness on climate change and adaptation practices among the decision makers in the agriculture and allied sectors and ensuring preparedness on climate induced natural disaster.

The series will commence in September 2018.
