Marketing Text The impacts of climate change give a special importance to adaptation measures in order to ensure that all regions in Europe are becoming more resilient. The practical implementation of adaptation measures mainly take place at the regional and local levels, particularly in urban environments. In that respect responsible planners, architects, decision makers as well as other planning and process relevant professionals play an outstanding role. Missing qualification in terms of adaptation to climate change is a bottleneck for any implementation. CLIM-CAP particularly will address these deficits by setting up a vocational training scheme for the above mentioned target groups, both from the public and the private sector.
Summary Climate adaptation is a future-oriented, demanding task for professionals and decision makers in urban and regional planning. The content of the CLIM-CAP vocational training course contains input concerning climate adaptation from different EU countries and thus contributes to different levels of adaptation strategies.
Description Based on a detailed market and demand analysis the consortium of six partners from five different countries developed an innovative, target group specific curriculum. Besides modules focusing on adaptation techniques and their integration into regional and local planning the training course will also comprise teaching units focusing on conflict moderation and stakeholder inclusion. The pilot was tested in all five consortium countries.
