The training comes at a critical time. The recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) demonstrated that holding global warming to the Paris Agreement best-effort target of 1.5 degrees Celsius will require rapid and large-scale transformations of our economies and development pathways.
Clearly, the need to act boldly has never been greater.

Communities across Australia and the surrounding region are already experiencing acute impacts of climate change, from blistering heat waves and intensifying storms to sustained sea level rise and more frequent and severe droughts. Increasing sea temperatures also threaten the region’s coral reefs, including Queensland’s famed Great Barrier Reef.
Despite these challenges, there is reason for hope.
Australia and the Asia-Pacific region have significant renewable energy potential. A just transition to a clean energy economy can improve human health and expand economic opportunities while preserving the region’s rich marine environment.
