The Zimbabwe climate change training course will be held on the 3rd and 4th April 2013 in Harare.
The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in South Africa has teamed up with four southern African countries to build capacity in the face of climate change that is based on needs assessments.
As such the group is providing capacity building training here to look at Climate Risk. Following the workshop here the session will move to Mozambique followed by Zambia and Zimbabwe. Topics under discussion in the capital this week will include key findings from the Africa Adaptation Project-Namibia as well as agriculture and water resources and climate change and disaster risk reduction.

In order to build capacity in the face of climate change, a three-day training course was held in Mozambique and Namibia. The Climate Risk and Vulnerability Handbook for Southern Africa (Davis, 2011) was used as the basis of the training with the programme built around the core chapters. The training material is now available for download.
For further information or if you would like to participate in one of the follow up training courses please contact Claire Davis.
The USAID project has helped support SADC level engagement; partly through providing source material for the SADC Climate Change Think Tank in early 2012; as well as the SADC Climate Change Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Response Framework (drafted 2011; currently in finalization). The position paper produced by the Think Tank makes further use of USAID project material (le Solle 2012). Dr Emma Archer van Garderen, part of the USAID project team, contributed to the aforementioned position paper, is currently developing the SADC Climate Change STI Implementation Plan, partly using USAID project publications source material; and is closely involved in the ongoing development of the SADC Climate Change Strategy.
