The free exchange of ideas and sharing of lessons between different sectors of society is imperative to the success of a “rights-based approach.” For this reason, CI has created diverse training materials on key conservation topics — so everyone has the information they need to be part of the solution.
For example, to equip indigenous peoples and other local communities with the information and tools they need to face a
changing climate, CI designed a variety of manuals, presentations and courses.
One specific toolkit provides local leaders with the information they need to train their communities to fully and effectively participate in ongoing efforts to adapt to the effects of climate change. The materials provide a global context for climate change and key issues related to adaptation, while giving trainers the flexibility to incorporate their own knowledge and experience to customize the information for a local audience.
