AGWA-U: Supporting Education in Climate Change Adaptation
The Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) is a network designed to provision tools, partnerships, and technical assistance to improve effective decision making, action, governance, and analytical processes in water resources management, focusing on climate adaptation and climate change relevant scales. As a way of carrying out AGWA's vision, we have begun offering graduate level courses in sustainable resource management and climate adaptation. The inaugural course took place in June 2016. Following the success of the first course, AGWA is creating a Working Group to develop a more general set of AGWA curriculum recommendations.

The Knowledge Platform is designed to promote and showcase an emerging set of approaches to water resources management that address climate change and other uncertainties -- increasing the use of "bottom-up approaches" through building capacity towards implementation, informing relevant parties, engaging in discussion, and creating new networks. This is an ongoing project of the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA) funded by the World Bank Group.
