Hi All,


Below is a message I have just received. Those interested can enrol for free training.


Hi Chaila - Thanks for connecting.


As a fellow environmental and GIS professional, I wanted to inform you about our massive open online course on Environmental Security and Sustaining Peace. The course focuses on the role that natural resources, environmental degradation and climate change play in conflict and peacebuilding dynamics.


This free 8 week course starts on 11 February - and only requires 2 hours per week of time. Transcripts are available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese.


The video trailer is here:  <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9synaiAb7Q&feature=youtu.be> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9synaiAb7Q&feature=youtu.be

The development of this course was a major undertaking over an entire year in a genuine partnership among the SDG Academy, UNEP, UNDP, the Environmental Law Institute, and the Universities of Columbia, Duke and California (Irvine). It also reflects the combined learning from a range of other UN agencies, governments, civil society and non-governmental organizations, academics, and private sector actors. It was funded by the government of Finland together with the EC and the United Nations Development Account.


We would welcome you to join this course as well as help get the word out to your colleagues in South Africa.


Thank you
