New Resource Guide for Advanced Learning on Climate Change and Cities
As part of its advanced learning series UN CC:Learn launches a new Resource Guide for Advanced Learning on Climate Change and Cities, produced with technical advice from the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat).
The learning resources presented in this Guide are drawn primarily from within the UN and partners to UN CC:Learn, designed to inform interested groups in learning more about climate change in urban areas. This material complements the UN CC:Learn Introductory e-Course on Climate Change, as well as the Specialised Module on Climate Change and Cities, focusing on the following learning topics.
- Cities’ Contribution to Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments in Urban Areas
- Vulnerable Groups in Urban Areas
- Concrete Actions on Urban Mitigation and Adaptation
- Integrating Climate Change into Local Planning
- Mobilising Financial Resources
This Guide facilitates access to existing state-of the-art materials relevant for climate change learning and cities. It is written from the perspective of a learner who perhaps understands the basics of the topic but is seeking to obtain a more advanced understanding by gaining quick access to the most relevant learning materials. The Guide covers selected climate change topics that have been identified as a priority from a country perspective.
The PDF and Interactive versions are both available online at UN CC:Learn Resource Guides for Advanced Learning on Climate Change.
