As part of the 19th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG2018), this short course focuses on statistical methods and data analysis in the field of climate and risk.
South African Environmental Observation Network (SAEON)
The South African Risk and Vulnerability Atlas (SARVA, through online, web-based services and applications directly supports the access to and visualization of different data sets dealing with or highlighting drivers, pressures, risk, vulnerability, resilience, and mitigation or adaptation within various themes on global change; and with the impacts of global change on human and natural environments.
The course raises awareness of this important agenda in the context of climate resilient development, and it will help teams and project managers in integrating Weather and Climate Services considerations into their projects, both in terms of project conceptualization and delivery.
Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness (PREP), World Resources Institute (WRI)
On 15 March 2018 (11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT), the Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness and the World Resources Institute are holding a webinar on "PREPdata - Visualizing Data to Build Climate Resilience".
United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), Environmental Law Institute, the Earth Institute at Columbia University, Duke University, University of California
Conflicts over natural resources are among the greatest challenges in 21st century geopolitics, and present serious threats to human security. At least 40 per cent of all internal armed conflicts over the past 65 years have had an important natural resource dimension.
Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC)
On 27 February 2018 (12:30 PM - 1:30 PM CET), Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici is holding webinar on "Informing and Supporting Climate Policy: The European Topic Centre on Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation".
The aim of the course is to develop participants’ skills in preparing proposals for low carbon climate resilient development in areas such as clean energy access, energy efficiency and adaptation to climate change so that they can mobilise climate finance, particularly from the Green Climate Fund (GCF), and catalyse the deployment of climate change solutions in developing countries.
