E-Learning Course on Climate Change Diplomacy: Negotiating Effectively Under UNFCCC

16 Sep 2013 - 10 Nov 2013

This online course on climate change diplomacy develops participants’ understanding of the climate change policy framework, by building an appreciation of the science, causes and impacts of climate change, the history of the policy-making process and the framework of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It also considers the pertinent challenges currently facing diplomats and international decision makers in making progress with what is currently on the negotiating table. The course takes a close look at the negotiations to-date and considers key topics for negotiators as we move towards establishing a new global agreement on climate change by 2015. The course takes a close look at gender in the negotiations and also the specific interests of parties who are most vulnerable to impacts of climate change.
