E-learning tool: ‘Planning for community based adaptation to climate change’

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has launched a web-based learning tool aimed at front line field practitioners and extension workers. It may help you develop radio programs about what your listening communities are doing – or could be doing – to adapt to climate change.

The learning tool covers the following topics:
1. “Climate Change” describes the scientific basis.
2. “Climate Change and Food Security” discusses climate change impacts on agriculture and food security, and introduces the concept of adaptation to climate change.
3. “Preparing for Community Based Adaptation” introduces steps, methods, and tools needed to prepare and launch processes for community based adaptation.
4. “Implementing Community Based Adaptation” provides guidance on how to facilitate implementation of local community based adaptation processes.

The learning tool is available free of charge and can be found online, here: http://www.webgeo.de/fao-webgeo-2-intro/.
