OL 341: Community Based Adaptation 1
We observed that 50% of student-chosen projects in our courses work to solve problems linked with climate change. In response, three years ago, we developed a diploma program of four courses (Diploma OL 340) tailored to the needs of those of you helping communities adapt to climate change. This course, OL 341, is the first in the series.
|Student Projects||Become the Solution|
For example, student projects have included efforts to help communities in Yemen, Morocco, Tanzania and Afghanistan recover from unprecedented droughts that exhausted their water sources—and helped communities in Suriname, Kenya, Nepal and Pakistan recover from flooding. The course will lead you through the development of similar real projects, in real time, and leave you with the practical field tools to sustain it.
