The IRI and the US Agency for International Development's Global Climate Change Office have jointly launched a webinar series on climate resilient development. The webinar topics address some of the IRI’s and USAID's most frequently encountered questions from development professionals.
In each of the following webinars, the scientists will introduce themselves, the concepts behind their work, and demonstrate how climate services can inform development decision-making for improved outcomes. The final segment of the webinar summarizes the main concepts presented and offers tips on how to deploy these concepts in climate-resilient decision making and planning. Please start with Walter Baethgen's introductory webinar.
The webinar series officially launches December 4-11, 2013. During launch week, development professionals have the opportunity to submit questions to the scientists and policy advisors via an online forum.
We will ask you once to provide information about yourself and hope that you will do so, in order for us to better understand our audience. We also encourage you to provide feedback for each of the webinars, and to ask questions.
The webinars were produced by the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) for review by the United States Agency for International Development and do not necessarily reflect the views of USAID.
The IRI would like to thank Stratus Consulting for their review of the presentations.
