ACPM 122: Climate Change Course
Africa Center for Project Management is pleased to announce a Certificate Course in Climate Change course Online and Distance Learning Course, which starts 1st of every month.

Course Overview
For too long, global warming has been viewed as tomorrow’s problem. The overwhelming evidence now suggests that climate change exacerbates existing development challenges, further exposing the vulnerability of the poor, and pushing those living on the margins closer to the edge. For those people most at risk, climate change is a crisis today. The rights, interests, and needs of those affected must take centre stage as an issue of global social justice.

Climate change is the defining issue of our era. Hardly a day passes without a newspaper, a broadcast or a politician making at least one reference to the threats it poses and the urgency of taking action, immediately to limit the effects and, in the longer term, to adapt to the changes that are sure to come.
The Certificate in Climate Change is an advanced online course for individuals wanting to strengthen their Knowledge and improve their career prospects.
