USAID LEAF's innovative climate change curriculum was featured on Channel 3's "Hot News" segment! At a seminar in December at Kasetsart University in Bangkok, the climate change curriculum was introduced to 16 universities from throughout Thailand. The focus of the curriculum is on participatory learning and teaching and consists of four modules: Basic Climate Change; Social and Environmental Soundness; Low Emission Land Use Planning; and Carbon Measurement and Monitoring.
