This event is organized as part of the project Capacity Development for Adaptation to Climate Change & GHG Mitigation in Non-Annex I Countries (C3D+) which seeks to improve the capacity of research and training institutions in developing countries to support climate change adaptation and mitigation action.

Event Objectives

This event aims to:

  • Present the Community Based Risk Screening Tool – Adaptation and Livelihoods – Focus on Forests (CRiSTAL-Forest) toolkit as well as the activities achieved in the testing phase;
  • Present selected results of the field testing phase of CRiSTAL-Forest;
  • Discuss results and conclusions;
  • Investigate how to strengthen capacities for the use of tools.

Additional Information

The C3D+ project brings together nine organizations located in developing countries from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Pacific and the Caribbean, to collectively form a knowledge and capacity development network, where each centre contributes its specialized experience to develop and apply tools and methodologies to support decision-making for climate change adaptation and mitigation.

The project is coordinated by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) with financial support provided by the European Commission and the Austrian Development Agency. Supplementary resources are provided by the Government of Switzerland to UNITAR for climate change capacity development activities.
