Who can enroll?

We aim to make the CARE Climate and Resilience Academy as inclusive as possible. This training is open to development and humanitarian practitioners from all types of organizations or institutions who would like to be better equipped to integrate adaptation in their projects, programs or policies. Applicants should however:

  • Have a basic knowledge of climate change.
  • Be able to commit the equivalent of 2 days a month for the course duration, and be willing and able to be an active participant and complete assignments on time.
  • Have a good understanding of/be able to communicate in English.
  • Have access to reliable enough internet in order to complete the course. 

For the coaching phase, the applicants should also:

  • Be involved in an activity that is integrating climate change adaptation, or where there is a need to integrate this theme.

What is the course format?

The e-learning module phase consists of live classroom lessons with your fellow participants, led by climate adaptation experts and blended with other learning resources: videos, quizzes, podcasts, key readings or online courses.

For those choosing to combine these modules with individual coaching, the coaching phase complements the e-learning by partnering you with your very own climate adaptation coach, who will support you for another 12 weeks  to successfully apply what you have learnt to your chosen project.

What will I learn?

By the end of the training, you will:

  1. Be able to explain and apply the concepts that frame climate change adaptation.
  2. Be able to know when to apply CARE’s main climate change adaptation approaches and tools.
  3. Be able to improve the integration of climate change adaptation into your projects and programs for better sustainability and results.

How much time do I need to give?

The Climate Change Adaptation Learning Journey is a 16-week online training course, followed by an optional 12-week individual coaching period where you apply what you have learnt to a project of your choice.

It is designed to be compatible with individuals already working full-time, as it only requires a time commitment of 2 days per month.

A new module will open every two weeks. You will be able to progress through each 2-week module at your own pace, completing required reading and assignments by the end of the 2-week period before the next module opens. Please note that there will be live webinars held during the training. These will run between 1.5 – 2 hours. Please save the date for these as follows:

  • Thursday 25 March

  • Thursday 1 July

Will I get a certificate?

At the end of the course, you will get a certificate if you have successfully completed all the assignments and quizzes and gather at least 80% of the total points available throughout the training. This will be based on your participation, for instance, and the number of assignments uploaded.
