Local Communities in Jordan Train for Climate Change Adaptation

30 climate change youth ambassadors from Irbid, Zarqa and Balqa participated in a capacity-building session on climate change theory and science in Amman on 6 and 7 July, 2018. It was the first of five workshops organised by the West Asia–North Africa (WANA) Institute as part of a project aimed at empowering local communities to design climate change adaptation plans, taking into account the effects of climate change on gender roles. The project is funded by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Jordan and supported by the IUCN.

During last weekend’s training, the participants were briefed about climate change theory and science. The upcoming trainings will cover various topics including climate change adaptation and mitigation, climate change and gender, social media, advocacy and campaigning, and proposal writing.
