Call for Applications: UNESCO Training on Building a Climate Resilient Future: Capacity Development in Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management in Selected UNESCO Designated Sites of South-East Europe (Extended Deadline: 20 September 2022)
The UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe, with the support of Bulgaria, is implementing the project “Building a climate resilient future: capacity development in climate change adaptation and disaster risk management in selected UNESCO designated sites of South-East Europe”. The project aims to contribute to a more climate-resilient South-East Europe region, notably climate resilience at UNESCO designated sites by improving the understanding of the impacts of climatic change and natural hazards on natural and cultural sites, and improving capacities for effective emergency preparedness and response within site governance frameworks. The project targets 5 UNESCO Member states in South-East Europe: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia. The project envisages institutional and professional capacity development through the introduction of a set of regional guidelines and tools in the areas of Climate Change Adaptation/Disaster Risk Management and the organization of training for UNESCO designated sites, notably Biosphere Reserves and World Heritage sites in South-East Europe.
