Climate Change & Disaster Risk Reduction - Philippines (Free Online Course)

Develop the competencies to respond to and advocate for improved interventions around climate change and disaster risk reduction.

This is a free interactive online course on climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, in the time of COVID-19. Please be aware that there is a selection process to attend this training: click the ‘apply’ button to submit an application.

RedR UK is offering a free of charge, innovative, high-quality online training course aiming to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to respond to and advocate for improved action around climate change and disaster risk reduction. The course will also consider how COVID-19 is impacting these interventions, to ensure responses to COVID-19 are not having a negative effect on climate change adaptation, and that tackling health pandemics are bought into wider disaster risk reduction strategies and frameworks.

The course is contextualized to the Philippines and uses case studies throughout to support development of DRR activities that allow for the adaptation and mitigation of the impact of climate change.

The training is a 5-week fully online course with a mix of live and asynchronous (offline) content every week, delivered on RedR UK’s dedicated e-learning platform. The course requires a commitment of around 6 -7 hours a week from participants. Live sessions will take place every week from 11th January to 13th February on Tuesdays at 5pm. There will be an additional live session on Friday 5th February, the 4th week of the course.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, and how to incorporate these practices in your organisation’s operations
  • Discuss the key factors associated with climate change science
  • Describe relevant implementation and operational activities for climate change
  • Explain methods for communication of climate change activities with stakeholders
  • Discuss practical climate change and DRR measures for relevant sectors, including health, agriculture and livelihoods
