Self-Paced Adaptation Planning

Are you lacking the capacity to invest in a full time adaptation planning program, but still want to learn and plan? If so, our Self-Paced Adaptation Planning Program is for you!

In the self-paced program you get access to 7 online learning modules. During these modules, you watch pre-recorded webinars where our team of experts teaches you how to lead your community through a climate adaptation planning process. Then, you complete assignments that put your learning into practice and help you create your plan.

If you get stuck at any point, our consultants are ready to help. You go at your own pace, and at the end you will have a climate adaptation plan that is ready for action!
