UNITAR to Host E-learning Course on Climate Change Diplomacy
The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) will host a web-based course on Climate Change Diplomacy from October 4th until 26th November 2010. The course aims to provide the training necessary for participation in multilateral negotiations, public sector work, and diplomatic engagement in relation to climate change through an enhanced understanding of its science, international policy framework, and the key negotiation issues pertinent to a post-2012 agreement.
The course targets mid to senior-level government officers in line ministries preparing for and/or taking part in conferences as well as staff of intergovernmental / nongovernmental organizations. It also targets entry-level and mid-career diplomats working in a multilateral setting. Private sector specialists and students whose work or studies are related to this subject are also encouraged to apply.
