APO Self-learning e-Course on Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: Basic Course

The unprecedented climatic uncertainty due to the unsustainable relationship humans have had with the environment in the past has become a new dimension of challenges to be faced and resolved. This must be put on the priority list of problems to be tackled since climate change has ramifications on numerous facets of life. SOcial unrest, for example, might be one of the worst things resulting from climate change if appropriate, timely actions are not taken. Climate change is one of the biggest global challenges the human race has faced. It is already affecting the physical surface of the earth, the environment that provides our life support, food supplies, economies, and societies. These changes are predicted to accelerate over the next few decades in the absence of effective global actions to steer a course in a different direction.

The Asian Productivity Organization (APO), in cooperation with the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), is implementing a self-learning e-course on July 1 and ends on December 31, 2017 (6 months), with the objective of helping participants understand the science, impacts, mitigation measures, policy framework, and adaptation strategies that can be implemented on individual, community, national, and global levels to reduce the impacts of climate change.

Target participants are government officials, climate change professionals, academics, and NGO staff actively involved in the area of climate change.

The structured self-learning e-course will be implemented through the APO’s dedicated e-learning website: http://www.eapo-tokyo.org. The participants can register on this website and create their own accounts. Ongoing registration starts on July 1 and will end at the closing hours of December 31, 2017.

As the National Productivity Organization, the DAP invites the public to register and participate in this FREE learning opportunity.

Participants who pass the final exam will earn an e-Certificate courtesy of the Asian Productivity Organization (APO), and will also be given preference, on a merit basis, for selection to attend the follow-up face-to-face multi-country APO project, subject to nomination requirements.
