A training course workbook was launched by Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) to be used by government officials in the Asia-Pacific to enhance their skills on mainstreaming weather and climate information application for agro-ecosystem resilience in a changing climate.
The course workbook spells out a detailed training course on ‘Agro-Ecosystem Resilience in a Changing Climate’ through 4 modules each covering different approaches to climate resilience and what works the best.
The workbook is the outcome of an Asia Pacific Network (APN) funded project “Mainstreaming Weather and Climate Information Application for Agro-ecosystem Resilience in a Changing Climate.” ADPC is implementing the project since 2016 in collaboration with the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka, Small Earth Nepal in Nepal, Sub-Institute of Hydrometeorology and Climate Change (SIHYMECC) in South Vietnam, United Nations University in Japan and the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in India.
