Main Resources • SPC/GIZ/AusAid Key Messages and Learning Outcomes on CC & DRM (First draft 2012) • SPC SOPAC Hazard in the Pacific Factsheets • USP PACE-SD Factsheets on CC • Country Profiles (PCCSP Climate Change Projections) • IPCC Report
Resources Draft Key messages and Learning Outcomes for Education on CC and DRM in the Pacific Region. (9 key elements of CC &DRM) (Guidance for Educators in Formal and In-formal Education – first draft SPC,GIZ & AUSAID; second draft will include USP, SPREP and UNESCO
Content There are 4 Sessions Each session • Reading materials • basic concepts of CC and DRM • local examples and illustrations • Exercises • Review Questions • Group Work Task • Resources Flexible depending on the availability of resources • Hard copies of resources to be provided • weblinks (if internet available)
Sessions • Session 1: Natural Hazard and Disasters in the Pacific Identify and learn the most common hazards and understand why a hazard can become a disaster. • Session 2: Causes and Effects of Climate Change Demonstrate understanding of the causes and the effects of climate change.
Session 3: Vulnerabilities and Impacts Demonstrate the skill to identify vulnerabilities to hazards and climate changes and variability and its impacts on communities and their livelihood. • Session 4: Identification of Option for Adaptation, Emission Mitigation and Disaster Risk Reduction Identifying different ways of adapting to changes and reducing disaster risks through sustainable community development.
Session 1: Natural Hazard and Disasters in the Pacific a. Definitions of hazard and disaster simplified from the Pacific Disaster Net/ some UNISDR b. Difference between hazard and disaster c. The different types of hazards • Hydro-meteorological hazard • Geological Hazard • Biological Hazard • Other Hazards
Session 2: Causes and Effects of Climate Change • Definition of weather, climate and variability • Difference between weather, climate and variability • Global Warming & Causes of Change • Greenhouse Gas Effect • Sources of GHG • Observed & Expected changes in the Pacific
Session 3: Vulnerabilities and Impacts What is vulnerability? Why are we so vulnerable? How can we assess vulnerability to disaster risks and climate change? Impact of CC and Hazards/Disasters on various sectors in the Pacific. • Human development • Biodiversity (Marine/Land) • Agriculture/Forestry • Water • Coastal Fisheries • Tourism • Physical Infrastructures • Health Positive & Negative Impacts
Session 4: Identification of Option for Adaptation, Emission Mitigation and Disaster Risk Reduction What is mitigation? (reducing emission and reducing risk to hazards) How can communities adapt to changes? How can communities reduce disaster risks? For each examples and approaches provided
Nextsteps • Finalize first draft until end of 2012 with: • Time allocation to reading, exercise and activities • Comments & Inputs from SPC, USP PACE SD and SPREP, UNESCO, PACCSAP (if and as interested) • Testing in pilot countries (e.g. Vanuatu first quarter 2013 and others) • Editing & Layout & Printing
