Green Growth, Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability

Ngong Hills Wind Farm in Kenya

The Danida Fellowship Centre (DFC) has contracted NIRAS to implement a 2-week Learning programme on Green Growth, Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability.

The learning programme took place in Copenhagen, Denmark from 9 to 20 April 2018.

The programme

The learning programme will inspire participants to focus on Green Growth, Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability in their daily work and in policy and business development. The programme will show that consideration for climate and environment holds opportunities for new businesses to develop and prosper, it can lead to saving opportunities in the production processes and it is fundamental to the development of a country.

This will be achieved through a blend of training approaches, including compulsory e-learning activities before coming to Denmark, as well as the implementation of an Action Plan after the return.

During the stay in Denmark, the programme will involve numerous visits to public authorities, utilities, and private companies where green approaches can be experienced first-hand. Working in groups the participants will prepare for the visits by discussing and agreeing on learning goals. Following the visits they will reflect on lessons learned and draw conclusions regarding the potential for implementing the ideas, concepts and technologies in their home organisations.

Who can participate?

The participants will all be from Danida partner countries and must be involved in Danida supported development cooperation activities. See the folder and the DFC website for details regarding  application procedures.
