Well done for reaching the end of Week 1!

In this week you have:

  • learned common terminologies used in climate science;
  • thought about how governments and communities are already responding to climate change effects;
  • considered how urgent it is to take action to reduce and adapt to climate change;
  • learned about two organisations that play an important role in climate adaptation action globally.

The concepts above give you a broad introduction to climate adaptation governance.

Next week

Next week you will learn more about:

  • how governments are responding to climate change on a national, (economic) region and global scale;
  • the challenges to implementation of climate change;
  • how public-private partnership may work;
  • polycentric governance.

So, let’s keep going! Continue to Week 2 where we explore real life cases of how climate adaptation is implemented globally.
