    The climate training kit 2016

    This Training Kit is adapted for Community Based Climate Smart Programming and developed as a tool to guide implementers in facilitating climate smart programming in communities. It is primarily intended for Project Managers, Project Officers, Red Cross Volunteers and Community Leaders who are directly responsible for implementing climate smart programming in vulnerable communities and are responsible for organizing safer villages and facilitating climate smart risk reduction plans. Careful thought was done to ensure that information contained in the training kit is relevant to support community planning. It is hoped that users of the kit will find the information useful in facilitating planning with communities and for other purposes such as in developing curricula for climate change training.

    The training kit was adapted from the South East Asia Climate Change Master Training of Trainers organized in September 2014 by IFRC and Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Center and improved with various inputs from National Societies.


    • Flexibility should be exercised when using the Training Kit. The success of the methods and tools described in the kit depends on the user’s ability in adapting them to the specific context and on the quality of his/her facilitation. There will be times when the facilitator and reader are tempted to mechanically follow the course design, recommended steps and activities in the kit. It is suggested that (training) needs assessment is done before facilitating or conducting the training/activity and that feedback or assessment is conducted immediately after the training/activity in order to further improve the material before moving on to the next activity or village.
    • The Facilitator should continually enrich the guide with lessons learned from implementing pilot projects. The methods and tools should be updated to guide future climate change adaptation and mitigation projects. Comments and feedback from users and other readers alike is encouraged and appreciated.

    This guide aims to provide an overview of successful practice from the field for the disaster risk reduction/ management practitioner interested in EWS. It presents guiding principles that will build a strong foundation for the design or strengthening of EWS at any level. It is not an operational, but a strategic, guide that insists on asking the right questions and exploring all perspectives prior even to deciding whether or not early warning is the appropriate tool for a given context. Overall, this guide aims to inspire readers to take simple integrated steps towards sustainable EWS that make clear contributions to community-level risk reduction and saving lives and livelihoods.
