The education programmes of INATE are developed under University Network for Climate and Ecosystems Adaptation Reseaerch (UNCECAR). UNCECAR develops postgraduate courses and training on climate and ecosystems change, and sustainability science to provide the foundations for developing future global leaders with the necessary breadth of understanding of the challenges and solutions to global change, and with a commitment to mainstreaming global change into decision and policy making in all sectors of our societies and economies. Such leaders will be committed to increasing the adaptive capacity and resilience to global change of the most vulnerable countries, regions, economic sectors and social groups. All programmes are unique with guest lecturers from over 20 leading international institutions and agencies sharing their expertise. Our current programmes are as follows.
