The first Advanced training session on Climate Variability and Change (CV&C), being an integral part of the PAP/RAC MedOpen virtual training course in ICZM in the Mediterranean, has started today. The preparation and development of the session has been envisaged by the ClimVar & ICZM project - complementary to the GEF/UNEP/World Bank Strategic Partnership for the Mediterranean Sea Large Marine Ecosystem - the MedPartnership initiative. In addition to raising awareness and improving knowledge of CV&C aspects in the Mediterranean, the aim of this session is to enhance a policy dialogue and build / improve capacities on implications of CV&C considerations.
This training session is intended for candidates from the GEF eligible countries in which the ClimVar & ICZM project is being implemented. Out of 24 candidates who applied for the training, 15 were selected from the following GEF eligible countries: Albania, Algeria, Croatia, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey. Priority was given to those whose educational background and professional experience are closely related to the contents to be explained and discussed in this training session.
We welcome aboard all our trainees!
