The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), through its Global Universities Partnership on Environment for Sustainability (GUPES), and Cologne University of Applied Sciences (CUAS), Germany, has launched the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Disasters and Ecosystems: Resilience in a Changing Climate. The MOOC is an outcome of the long-standing collaboration between UNEP and the Center for Natural Resources and Development, a consortium of 11 universities from around the world that is coordinated by CUAS. The free course, due to start in January 2015, will cover the following topics: Disaster trends and statistics; Fundamentals of disaster risk reduction; Climate change, disasters, and environmental linkages; Tools for ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and adaptation; and Global, national and local processes of disaster risk reduction. The course will be delivered through a series of lectures and case studies, along with substantial additional study materials provided to the students. Lectures will be available through videos as well as online documents, and will be geared for students who may not have access to high speed internet so they can also follow the course. Registration for the course is now open.
