Investing in Education, Skills, and Research Collaborations for Climate Action
Education and training have a critical role to play in combating the negative effects of climate change. Climate-induced disasters adversely affect education systems, like floods and natural disasters, disrupting education. However, education and training can be major drivers for knowledge solutions and behavior change for positive climate action. Advanced education and skills will contribute to effective adaptation and mitigation. International research collaborations in climate action will increase the capacity of the Asia and Pacific region to put knowledge and technology to work to improve resilience. Advanced digital technologies have enormous potential in contributing to climate-smart interventions. Investment in skills for sustainability can drive greener occupations and jobs.
In this panel discussion at ADB Resilience Learning Month, global experts will share experiences on climate change-related education and training. They will present important arenas for action in education, skills, research, and scientific collaborations for effective and timely climate action needed for sustainable economies and societies.
