Call for Applications: Climate Change Diplomacy
Climate change is becoming an important issue in global and regional negotiation processes. In the past, a few negotiators trained specifically for the Kyoto process could effectively cover climate change issues, but today officials involved in an increasing range of fields (such as energy, human rights, telecommunications, and health) need knowledge about climate change issues. This course will equip participants to represent and promote the interests of their own countries in the global climate change policy process. In addition, the course will broaden participants’ general understanding of climate change and the global policy response to climate change. Diplo will run two sessions of Climate Change Diplomacy in 2009:
Session 1: June 8 – August 14, 2009. Application deadline: May 18
Session 2: September 28 – December 4, 2009. Application deadline: September 7.
We are currently accepting applications for the June session. Full scholarship support will be provided by the Maltese Ministry of Foreign Affairs to diplomats, civil servants, and academics from small and developing states involved in climate change policy processes and negotiations.
