The course is developed to enhance awareness to future climate hazards and impacts that the emergency services sector may face.

Participants will gain an understanding of how to identify and apply adaptation strategies to address local emergency service sector vulnerabilities. The course is also designed to provide opportunities for participants to learn about various resources that can be used to implement local climate adaptation strategies in their communities.
