BAPA is co sponsoring this workshop designed by the Association of Climate Change Officials (ACCO). This is a series of 2-day training academies in Fort Lauderdale to enable attendees to satisfy all course requirements for the Climate Governance Certificate, a credential issued through ACCO’s CCO Certification TM Program. These academies will provide curriculum on topics including understanding climate science and variability, identifying climate hazards and conducting vulnerability assessments, basics of greenhouse gas accounting, explanations of the food-water-energy nexus, and fundamental governance and stakeholder engagement strategies. Produced and offered in partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale, workshop participants will learn from experts about the implications of climate change with a regional focus added for Florida. Professionals from the public and private sectors, higher education and the NGO community will benefit from the classroom-style, interactive training activities. The first workshop is a primer on climate science, identifying climate hazards, conducting vulnerability assessments, leveraging climate change data and tools and understanding the energy-water-food nexus. This workshop enables decision makers across roles, functions and sectors to develop a better understanding of how the implications of climate change intersect with their decision making.
