The ultimate aim of CLIM-CAP is to develop a training programme that supports more informed and proactive development of climate change adaptation measures in towns, cities and villages through up-skilling the built environment professionals working on the planning, design and implementation of adaptation schemes.
To fulfill this aim, CLIM-CAP has five key objectives:
- To develop a curriculum that fulfills trainee needs based on a market and demand analyses by filling the existing gaps climate change adaptation training currently provided by partner countries.
- To develop a training programme that facilitates the transfer of integrated knowledge on climate change adaptation within the built environment and the processes of urban planning.
- For each project partner to pilot the training course within their partner country and to monitor the experience of trainees and trainers in order to provide to feedback that will improve the final CLIM-CAP training programme.
- To enable the development of new skills among built environment professionals that foster an integrated approach to the implementation of climate change adaptation within the built environment through the CLIM-CAP curriculum and learning environment.
- To continually monitor, assess, and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the CLIM-CAP curriculum development and training course during the lifetime of the project.
The CLIM-CAP project is divided into 8 Work Packages (WP); each Work Package is lead by a CLIM-CAP partner and all partners take part in all WPs.
The evaluation activities will monitor and improve the project measures and assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the products (curriculum development and training course).
