This module introduces both the theory and practice of climate resilient development and provides an overview of how Information and Communication Technology (ICTs) can be used to enhance climate resilient development. Real-life examples and case studies on the applications of ICTs in climate change adaptation and mitigation have been included in the module to encourage and support applied understanding of climate resilient development to participants’ own areas of work.

By the end of this module, participants will:
• Be familiar with climate resilient development and its associated terminologies, including key linkages between climate change and disaster risk management, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and SDGs;
• Be aware of ICT sector’s contributions to the global challenge of climate change, including in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions;
• Understand how ICTs can be used to achieve climate resilient development in key sectors;
• Understand the key enablers for supporting the application of ICTs in climate resilient development, namely the importance of people, processes, policies and systems; and
• Apply digital applications introduced in the module to real-life situations or scenarios that are relevant to their area of work
