Innovative Climate Change Curriculum Impacts Students and Professors

Innovative Climate Change Curriculum Impacts Students and Professors

08 September 2015

Over the past three years, USAID LEAF, the U.S. Forest Service, and nearly 120 professors from six countries across Asia-Pacific have been engaged in a collaborative process of developing a new climate change curriculum. Through multiple regional workshops and with input from professors from three U.S. universities, the network of professors developed four curriculum modules: Basic Climate Change; Social and Environmental Soundness; Low Emission Land Use Planning; and Carbon Measurement and Monitoring. Each module is comprised of presentations with associated lecturer notes, all complemented by case studies, role plays and teaching guides.

Read our latest success story to learn how USAID LEAF is helping professors to train a new cadre of professionals able to address the challenges of climate change throughout Asia and the Pacific.
