The Winter School programme is a one week (5 day), on-site, course run and hosted by CSAG in Cape Town, South Africa. The course is presented by a number of facilitators both from within CSAG and also from other institutions. The course aims to take participants through the full spectrum of climate and climate change related topics. These include:

  • Climate dynamics
  • Risk and vulnerability framing
  • Climate modelling theory
  • Climate change projections
  • Climate adaptation frameworks
  • Downscaling methods
  • Adaptation planning, policy and decision making

The course is structured around an equal mix of interactive lecture input and group work and proves to be a dynamic, effective and fun week.
