The Northern Climate ExChange (NCE) has developed a two-day climate change course for training Government of Nunavut (GN) employees. The course has been delivered in Iqaluit to GN staff, ensuring that they are aware of climate change impacts and have the tools, resources and support needed to make appropriate decisions around climate change. This course will increase Nunavut’s adaptive capacity by ensuring that climate change is considered in decision-making at all levels of government.
Course material integrates current and relevant information from a broad range of sources and stakeholders. The course informs government employees and decision-makers on adaptation concepts, resources and applications, and provides them with the understanding to begin integrating and mainstreaming climate change into their work. NCE developed and delivered the pilot course and follow up courses, as well as sector-specific resource guides that build on the course material. The course was developed in collaboration with the Government of Nunavut’s Climate Change Section, and with the oversight of an advisory group including academics, scientists, and representatives from a wide-range of GN departments.
This course was developed and delivered by NCE's Climate Change and Information Mainstreaming Program.
