In January 19-23, 2015, Erda RTE jointly with Central European University (Budapest, Hungary) had run an intensive training in development and preparation of syllabi and learning materials on climate change for a group of university teachers from Belarus. The 40 hours training was commissioned by UNDP (tender RFP /913/2014). It included lectures, workshops and a field visit, and encompassed the whole range of climate change-related issues, including processes in the physical system, climate change adaptation and mitigation, use of ICT tools for communicating climate change information and uncertainties. All the participants received certificates issued by Central European University and countersigned by Dr. Anton Shkaruba, the director of Erda RTE.
