Diplo’s online course on Climate Change Diplomacy provides relevant knowledge and practical skills for diplomats, scientists and others who participate in the climate change policy process. The course focuses on scientific, economic, social and governance aspects of climate change, with emphasis on development issues. The course is regularly updated to reflect developments in the ongoing climate change policy process. For example, following the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Summit the course strengthened examination of issues that contributed to the failure of the summit, including negotiation and communication between different professional cultures (e.g. scientists and policy makers).

In Diplo courses, participants learn in a vibrant environment in small groups of a maximum of 25 participants. They receive personal attention from course tutors, which is a distinctive feature of our training methodology. In addition, participants engage in intensive peer-to-peer exchange and debate. By the end of the course, participants will have gained the necessary knowledge and skills to participate effectively in climate change policy processes.

While achieving a high learning impact, Diplo online courses leave a low carbon footprint. In 2009, by studying via the Internet from their offices and homes, participants in Diplo’s courses reduced carbon emissions, saving 1.150 tons of C02.

In preparation for the 2010 meeting in Mexico, Diplo will offer several sessions of Climate Change Diplomacy. A limited number of scholarships will be provided for diplomats, civil servants and academics from small and developing states involved in climate change policy processes and negotiations. The course was developed and is run with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malta and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.

The first session of Climate Change Diplomacy begins the week of May 17, 2010 (application deadline April 26). For more information about our 2010 courses and to apply, please visit http://www.diplomacy.edu/Courses/Climate.asp or contact us at climate@diplomacy.edu.
