Environment Inside - Chapter 9


[Chapter to be developed]


(Contact: peter.croal@acdi-cida.gov.ca)

CIDA has launched an e-learning course on environmental integration, which will devote a significant portion of the integration techniques to SEA. This course is compulsory.



(Contacts: Ulrika.Akesson@sida.se Annika.Otterstedt@sida.se)

  • The existing e-learning module on environmental integration is being used by many in Operations and is under revision primarily to increase the focus on climate change and disaster risk reduction.

  • A flexible training module on environment and climate change has been developed to serve as a starting point for a discussion on capacity development of country/regional teams.

  • Internal training modules on the Swedish thematic priority Environment and Climate Change are developed and used in 6 courses.
