CSAG-CONFER Climate Risk Training School Addis Ababa

With climate risk as the central theme, this course aims to stimulate thinking and discussion about how climate risk is understood, what climate risk means in different contexts and how it can be managed. To this end, CSAG and CONFER is organizing a Climate Risk Training School in Addis Ababa from 28 August – 1 September 2023.

The course structure combines lectures, formal and informal discussions, interactive exercises, and group working sessions.

Course content

The presenters and facilitators are from both CSAG and external institutions. There will be a focus on the needs of countries in East Africa, and case studies are based on these. The course aims to address the needs of participants from these countries and understand some of their constraints whilst taking participants through the full spectrum of climate variability and climate change-related topics.


The course is conducted in English. Full competence in written and spoken English is an essential requirement.
