In this course, you will learn the basics for developing economically viable climate-resilient plans. The course starts with a review of the scientific consensus on changes in climate patterns and projections to the future and explains the rationale for countries to develop climate-resilient plans that will help them to move away from a business-as-usual development path.

Comment from our editors:

Useful for understanding the decoupling between neoclassical economic growth and negative externalities involving climate change by understanding the economics behind adaptation costs.
