Environment and Climate Change

This course is developed to equip delegates with skills and knowledge to effectively analyse influential factors and management of water and land in light of increasing population size and a changing climate. The course also provide the delegates with spatial analysis and management techniques, conflict or cooperation will also be discussed a management perspective and their influence on the environment within the major river basins and beyond. The course also discusses broadly about the environment and sustainable development connected problems related to the natural resources, political situation, social aspects, and economic situation. By the end of the course the delegates will be able to evaluate water and land resource management alternatives in view of environmental effects.
This course is developed to equip delegates with the knowledge to convert the climate analysis into adaptation actions to strengthen food security and natural resource management. The course will also express the significance of appropriate responses to climate change that in their absence there will be an impact on sectors such as agriculture, fisheries, forestry and landscape management. The course will provide the delegates with an in – depth understanding of the interlinkages between climate change, food security and natural resource management through practical and participatory tools which allows them to assess who and what in your landscape is vulnerable to climate impacts. Overally the course will equip the delegates with the best insights into possible adaptation strategies as well as which stakeholders to involve.
This course is designed to equip delegates with the knowledge to adapt to the ever –changing climate in both the developed and the developing world. The course provides some knowledge on climate projections, the potential hazards socio – ecological systems may face, and what adaptation to those hazards might involve. The course is also aiming at disseminating how knowledge of climate change can be translated into action, deliberate potential strategies for adaptation, and the potential for maladaptation.
This course is designed to equip the delegates with advanced knowledge on the concepts of environmental management and how these apply to effectively managing projects. The course will also intensively discuss the intellections behind the environment and environmental threats, as well as how these affect and can be affected by their line of business. The course also enhance the delegates’ knowledge on environmental legislation and environmental management systems with a special emphasis on current insights on climate change. The course also teaches the delegates about the impact of pollution, the barriers to a sustainable future and how to challenge these barriers. Separately the course will also furnish the benefits of utilising the use of renewable energy and how to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprints for a better world.
This course is designed to equip delegates with knowledge to grasp some deep understanding of sustainable development in the context of climate change. The course will address how climate change and sustainable development are linked, and how both are combined in local, national, regional and international policy – making about environment and development challenges such as poverty, global inequalities, loss of biodiversity, and the deterioration of global ecosystems. The course will also examine the methodologies in which the state, private sector and civil society interact on national and international levels to address climate change and sustainable development issues through better policy making and governance models and frameworks of sustainability.
This course is designed to equip delegates with knowledge to understand the two major ways to measure climate change impacts – carbon foot printing and auditing. The course will orient the delegates to the background of foot printing and eco – labelling and the various schemes which exist regionally and internationally. The course will also discuss the ways in which ecosystem services and changes in levels of services can be valued, measured and monetised by society, across the spectrum from aesthetic to extractive values.
This course is developed to equip delegates with knowledge and skills to have an in – depth understanding conceptualisations of different forms of human mobility in such contexts, and critical appraisal and application of relevant law/policy frameworks including: international refugee and human rights law; national and international law and policy on migration and internal displacement, and; recent global initiatives to address human displacement and migration. The course will also discuss common disasters that usually causes displacement and strategic plans that can be put in place to mitigate the impact of these disasters.
This course is developed to equip delegates with the knowledge to understand the methodology of environmental impact assessment (EIA) as a vital tool for sound environmental management and decision-making. This course provides an overview of the concepts, methods, issues and various forms and stages of the EIA process and also investigates the development of EIA in Africa and beyond. The course will also discuss a variety of case studies around the African continent especially Sub – Saharan Africa and others to have a comparative basis on their treatment of EIA. In these case studies different levels and systems of EIA are scrutinised to highlight the diversity of approach and impact of the EIA process.
This course is developed to equip delegates with the knowledge on disaster management responsibilities, training in a holistic approach towards disaster management to enable them to manage all kinds of disasters by implementing proactive disaster management strategies. The course will also take in consideration the relevant legislation, policies and directives, and effectively co – ordinate relief and disaster recovery programs. Students will have an understanding of the principles and practices of disaster management. The course also ensures choice of effective and sustainable option whereas EIA of disasters helps in response measures for recovery of ecosystem services, livelihoods, environmental quality and sustainability to minimise future disaster risks.
This course is developed to equip the delegates with the knowledge to understand the impact of different environmental monitoring techniques for water, noise, air, and wastes; how to model and interpret the impacts of pollutants; and the techniques available to eliminate the pollutants. The course also provide the delegates with significant skills necessary to undertake environmental assessment work, interpret the results, and suggest appropriate remedial measures, bearing in mind pollutants can be a reusable resource. The delegates at the end of this course will have the ability to contribute on environmental conservation in a bid to prevent any deterioration which can be prevented.
This course is developed to equip delegates with the knowledge to master environmental economics and environmental implementation planning where the environmental economics is to consider if environmental projects are possible based on the cost – benefit analysis. The course also address the following under implementation planning – plan analysis, policy implementation and process implementation. By the end of the course delegates will be able to follow the step by step process of implementing environmental planning.
This course is developed to equip delegates with knowledge and skills to critically analyse significant trends in our climate system over time and through this scrutiny they will figure out how nature and human – derived forcing agents drive our climate system. The course also provides an in – depth understanding on the urgent need for mitigation and adaptation to address any current or future challenges that may arise. The delegates will also benefit to a greater extend how climate change challenges intersect with decision – making, there will be discussions around housing, energy, waste, and land management.
This course is developed to equip delegates with knowledge to have an in – depth understanding on use of environmental impact assessment methodologies in assisting policymakers, business and the community to better understand the likely consequences of climate change at various spatial and temporal levels. This course will also teach the delegates the physical science of climate change, the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change, strategies for adapting to climate change, and climate change mitigation. By the end of this course the delegates will have the ability to make sound decisions before implementing any climate change policies.
This course is designed to equip delegates with in – depth knowledge on the practical approaches developed through the experience of several African countries to understand the political economy of biodiversity and development. The course also sets out how to assess the institutional and political factors that link development and biodiversity by identifying the main institutions involved and getting to know the planning, budgeting and other decision-making processes that need to be engaged. The course will also enhance the delegates with implementation competence through continuous improvement and introducing the policy cycle and showing how mainstreaming has a role at each and every stages.
The course is developed to equip delegates with the knowledge on solid waste management which includes the main aspects of waste policy and systems. The course will provide a special emphasis on the types and amounts of solid waste, regulatory aspects, the handling of wastes and byproducts, technology for waste treatment, and political instruments and consequences of solid waste handling. The course also cover discussions on solid wastes – municipal waste, biomedical waste, hazardous waste, e – waste; legal issues and requirements for solid waste management; sampling and characterization of solid waste; analysis of hazardous waste constituents.
