Warmly Welcome all students to the self-paced part of 3rd Hybrid Training Course on Nature-based Solutions for Disaster and Climate Resilience. This part will consist of 4 sessions: Session 1: Fundamentals of disaster and climate resilience Session 2: Fundamentals of Nature-based Solution Session 3: The need for nature-based solutions in managing climate and disaster risk Session 4: International frameworks, opportunities, and challenges around Nature-based solutions We expect you will not skip any sesssion and will pass all quizes to complete this course well. The criteria for passing this online part is each participant must pass at least 70% of the total score of the quizes. Wish you passing it and to be ready for the face to face phase.

About This Course

As climate change effects intensify, Nature-based Solutions (NbS) emerge as potent tools to bolster resilience against disasters and climate shifts. Beyond serving as natural shields against hazards and reducing exposure, they play a dual role by extracting greenhouse gases and fostering ecosystem health. Both aspects are pivotal for realizing Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) objectives. This training will acquaint attendees with NbS in the context of DRR and CCA, encompassing foundational principles and globally recognized NbS standards. Through real-world case studies from various Asian and Pacific regions, participants will gain insights into conceptualizing and rolling out NbS strategies for enhanced resilience. Participants will formulate an action blueprint detailing NbS integration into DRR and CCA initiatives by the course's end, ensuring alignment with global best practices.
