Why this Certificate Course?
The entire humanity is going through a transition with a 1.2°C higher temperature compared to the pre-industrial level, higher than the Planet can tolerate. As a result, about 35% of our precious biodiversity in terms of flora, fauna and avifauna are already extinct; agricultural productivity has drastically gone down with a threat to food security of the Planet; Water quality & quantity have hugely deteriorated; Sea level rise has gone up to an alarming level, frequent Disasters are widespread in our day to day life now, Many of the cold ocean currents are converted to warm ones, Air pressure belts have shifted considerably, None of the ecosystems of the Planet is supplementing to each other.
COP 27 to UNFCCC, is happening now in Egypt; where 196 Member Nations of United Nations, are participating. In COP 26 at Glasgow, 190 Nationals had their Climate Pledges to limit the temperature rise to 1.5°C; but failed miserably to meet their Commitments. We are now at a Crossroads; where time demands immediate solutions, through aggressive Climate Actions.
Environment, Water, Air, Trees, all the elements of Nature silently tolerate all the torture that we humans impose on them. Water doesn’t shout, “Don’t abuse me”, Air never raise Alarm, if someone silently pollute it and a Tree never calls anyone, “Don’t cut me!” and often gives the Shelter and soft Shadow to a Person, even who even axes it. In such a situation, Policing of Nature is really Complex and most difficult Operation and Probably next to impossible. Since the human interest, is always to benefit, Carbon Trading, has been designed to solve these challenges, where the Polluter pays; who reduces the emission is paid for. In such a context, Carbon & Natural Resource Foot-printing, GHG Inventorisation & Assessment, leading to Carbon Management, has become inevitable. Carbon Management occupies 80- 85% of sustainability space. Since the Planet's existence is at stake and all of us, global citizens- beyond country boundaries, have our survival challenges as the most posing challenge of the time.
Considering the urgent Demand of the Market, Individuals, Government Policies, Industrial Leaders; IISD-CMI have planned 2 Days of Intense Certificate Courses to bring all the relevant Professionals, under the umbrella of a single platform, to equip the learners, with adequate skills to achieve a higher level of Professional Proficiency in their desired area of specialization.
Come, Joinand explore this Opportunity for the Enhancement your Professional Strengths & Capabilities, which will Centre-stage you, as the front runners in the race of Carbon Management Experts and Sustainability Leaders.
