TESTIMONIALS

The MOOC was extremely valuable in helping me understand resilience thinking and NBSAPs and how they related to the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. There are many synergies that need to be considered, and this MOOC will enable me to include this in a synergistic way with the Paris Agreement goals.

The courses I have taken have significantly improved my knowledge of managing resilient ecosystems and protected areas in the adverse dynamic changes of the climate. The multi-cultural environment of the course was a pleasant experience that enabled me to be more confident and learn from others.

Where I live, tourism is the base of the economy. After this course, it is now clearer that my city doesn’t have to renounce to tourism. Instead we, citizens, must engage as local stakeholders in developing a more resilient thinking with which we can remain open and ready to cope with the needs of change, adaptation and transformation.

Ana Celis
Universidad del Caribe, Mexico

I’m thankful for the course. It was well-organized and provided me with the key concepts and a clear view about how to create a resilience assessment and design the optimal framework that brings more participation and solutions toward desirable options than I had ever seen.
