The Knowledge Support Program (KBSP) as a online course brings together tools, processes and case studies which can help knowledge brokers mainstream climate change and future uncertainty into their program. By integrating climate change and future uncertainty, knowledge brokers can increase the likelihood of the long-term success of their programs. The KBSP toolbox is useful for NGOs, government and private sector individuals who are involved in supporting decision-making at the community level.

The course is designed for a broad audience. If you are a decision maker, development practitioner, government official, student or anyone who is interested in climate change adaptation and systems thinking this course is designed for you.
