Join the world bank group in turning climate science into action

 Join the world bank group in turning climate science into action by enrolling for MOOC

 Each part of the world faces specific vulnerabilities to climate change and has different opportunities to mitigate the effects and build resilience in the 21st century. With the Paris Agreement at COP 21, the global community has signaled its intent to act. Indeed, without climate action, decades of development progress are threatened, meaning that we are at a ‘make it or break it’ point in time. This course presents the most recent scientific evidence, regional impacts and climate action strategies, and some opportunities for you to take action on climate change.

This action-oriented MOOC gives you the opportunity to learn about regional climate change impacts and sector-specific strategies to increase resilience and move towards a low-carbon future. You will have the opportunity to explore these issues in depth and tailor your learning experience for one or more of the following regions:

    Latin America and Caribbean;
    Sub-Saharan Africa;
    Middle East and North Africa;
    Eastern Europe and Central Asia;
    East Asia and Pacific; and
    South Asia.

To do this, the MOOC brings together renowned scientists and policymakers to provide a synthesis of the most recent scientific evidence on climate change, regional low emissions and climate resilient development strategies across sectors, and an analysis of the Paris Agreement and other outcomes of COP 21.
