Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH
Adaptation to climate change is increasingly important for businesses, but it also entails a number of new business opportunities at the same time. On behalf of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and within the framework of the Dissemination of Climate Technologies for Mitigation and Adaptation with the Private Sector project, adelphi developed a series of innovative training approaches to raise business representatives’ awareness of and build their capacities in the challenges and opportunities brought about in adapting to climate change. On the basis of a needs assessment, adelphi developed the comprehensive, blended-learning Dissemination of Climate Technologies for Adaptation – Business Opportunities programme for representatives from multinational corporations in emerging and developing economies. The programme used various capacity building methods, including a training, a study tour and an online learning platform.
In addition, adelphi ran the Adaptation to Climate Change training session for business representatives from Germany, covering opportunities as regards climate change adaptation. The training session was organised in cooperation with the German Global Compact Network and was hosted for the second time by adelphi. The training demonstrated how businesses can improve their resilience and adaptive capacity, and how they can identify new market opportunities in climate change adaptation.
