In this game, students will make decisions and policies to improve the resilience of a city in the face of climate change-related events. The uncertainty of such events poses challenges that require students to understand and choose the best overall strategies for climate resilience.
In this print-and-play version of a tabletop game, students lead fictional cities and assume decision-making roles to help their cities combat and adapt to climate change. Players must prepare for events such as heat waves, ocean acidification, hurricanes, and sea-level rise through planning and management of resources.

This comic book provides an introduction to the effects of climate change on our environment, and specifically, on coral reefs and integrated ecosystems. In this book, two schoolchildren in the Bahamas explain the possible effects of climate change and propose actions for adaptation and mitigation.
This game helps students to identify diseases from their symptoms, to understand the possible effects of climate change on human health in different regions of the world, and to explore measures (specifically, policies) for adaptation and mitigation in the context of health impacts of climate change.
This is a UNESCO course for secondary teachers on climate change education for sustainable development. As mentioned by UNESCO, this six day course supports teacher education institutions to introduce climate change education into their pre-service and in-service training programme. The course is designed to give teachers confidence in facilitating climate change education for sustainable development across the curriculum and inside and outside the classroom. The course suggests that the teaching of climate change should go beyond the science classroom. It proposes a pedagogical framework, exercises, regional resource and facilitation guidelines to teacher educators.
The requirements on financial instruments to support climate action are multiple. This self-paced E-learning Course introduces various topics in Climate Finance for Economics students and practitioners.
