New framework helps strengthen institutional capacity for planning and delivering climate adaptation
· A new paper released by the Action on Climate Today (ACT) programme, titled, “Building institutional capacity for enhancing resilience to climate change: An operational framework and insights from practice” shows how institutions can strengthen their capabilities to tackle climate change across different levels of government.

It has become increasingly important to use ‘Evidence-Based’ criteria to decide what kind of programmes work, how, for whom, in what circumstances and at what cost. This course aims to enable participants to understand, critique and make effective use of such evidence.
Much evidence is quantitative in nature and this course aims to enable participants to understand, critique and make effective use of such evidence.
Water (-Hazard) Resilient (Infrastructure for ) and Sustainable Cities are cities that achieve safe and adequate water supply and sanitation services based on sound water-related ecosystems, high level of water use efficiency, and a greater urban resilience to water-related disasters (here Water-Resilient Cities). The framework of Integrated Urban Water Management, follows Integrated Water Resource Management principles, adopts eco-city, compact city and smart growth concepts and approaches in urban planning.
Wetlands play an essential role in supporting food security, in making water resources management sustainable and in adapting to climate change impacts. How do we prevent that wetlands continue to disappear in the same rate as in the past and that these valuable ecosystem services are lost? We believe we need stewards who can advocate the value of wetlands.
Public and private standards for pesticide residues have become stricter than ever before. Pesticide residues exceeding the maximum residue limits can hamper trade between upcoming economies and the EU. Implementation of Integrated Pest Management is necessary to minimize pesticide applications. But while there are plentiful technical solutions, the application of Integrated Pest Management is still a struggle for many farmers.
Large-scale production and marketing of agricultural crops depend on a limited number of genetically uniform varieties that deliver uniform food products. With this approach becoming global, genetic diversity is endangered. Worldwide, strategies are developed to conserve genetic resources for food and agriculture.
This course provides the latest development in plant genetic resources management strategies including the role of gene banks and on-farm management and relevant international policies that impact food- and nutrition security.
Forested landscapes worldwide are increasingly integrated in global processes of trade, market development, resource exploitation and climate change. Site-based or community level approaches can no longer cope with these issues which exceed the local sphere of influence. Although landscapes are usually considered to be appropriate levels to negotiate land use options, they are rarely recognised as units of political- administrative decision making, hence do not have any formal place in decentralised structures of states.
The development landscape has changed significantly over the last few decades, becoming increasingly complex. Many of the issues we face today, such as climate change, poverty and conflict, call for a new way of doing business, so as to collaboratively contribute towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Managing for Sustainable Development Impact (M4SDI) approach has evolved to support leaders and development practitioners how to navigate this complexity and manage their initiative/organisation successfully towards sustainable development impact.
The steady increase in climate related disasters such as floods, cyclones, storm surges and drought have increased the exposure and vulnerability of communities, their livelihoods, physical infrastructure and economic networks. An increasing hazard risk results in higher human and economic losses from disaster events.
Sustainable management of natural capital underpins human development and well-being. Ecosystem services provide a conceptual framing to help identify and manage synergies and trade-offs in the natural capital, natural resource management, food security and biodiversity conservation domains.
This course is designed for practitioners working in government institutions, NGOs, international agencies and private sector with an interest in identifying, appraising and managing the synergies and trade-offs among multiple users and uses of nature.
This program provides strategies for Youth Sustainable Development Projects. It is also explores the need to raise awareness about sustainable development for young generations, addressing the importance of the balance between development process and environmental protection. In this program, we present the key role that young people can play towards the sustainable development.

Join a 6 months intensive program with studies, courses and action to make the small island nation of St. Vincent Climate Compliant.
The standing action conference started in 2012 and will run till 2021.
A small group of teachers and students from Richmond Vale Academy will together with a big group of Vincentians make our island and people ready for climate change.
We have cleaned up 15 tons of trash from rivers and beaches, planted 25,000 trees, set up 2 model gardens, produced 60 TV and Radio Programs and taught 10.000 people face to face.
On 2 June 2015, PHAP hosted a live online consultation event in support of the the World Humanitarian Summit regional process for the Pacific region. The event happened in anticipation of the regional meeting on 30 June to 2 July 2015 in Auckland, New Zealand.
The Pacific region is one of the most disaster-prone in the world. Five of its countries are among the top 15 most at risk of disasters globally and eight out of 20 countries in the world with the highest average annual disaster losses by GDP are Pacific island countries.
