Climate Adaptation: Government Training Support Program


1 February, 2014 to 29 January, 2016

Task area: 

  • Capacity building

USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific is announcing a closure of the Government Training Support Program (GTSP).

Since 2012, GTSP has successfully supported 40 government officials from 12 countries in Asia and the Pacific Region to attend training courses in the area of climate change adaptation and finance, offered by regionally and internationally-recognized training institutions. Participants included mid-to-senior level officials from various government departments, ministries, national climate change trust, national agricultural and rural development bank, municipalities, etc. Participants came from diverse sectors ranging from climate change to water resource management, forestry, agriculture, rural development, natural resources and environment, geology, planning, finance, tourism, marine and coastal resources management and disaster risk reduction.

GTSP participants have greatly benefitted from the program through the improvement of their technical skills and the advancement of their capability in effectively design and deliver climate change adaptation programs. Upon their return to the various government agencies, participants have made significant contributions to influence climate change policy, as well as to the development of climate change adaptation projects and proposals.

USAID Adapt Asia Pacific Project would like to express our gratitude to all applicants for their interest and participation in this program over the past years, and to USAID/RDMA and the various USAID Missions across the region for their continued support. These are immensely integral to the success of the program.

The Climate Change Adaptation Project Preparation Facility for Asia and the Pacific (USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific) is a program of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Regional Development Mission for Asia (RDMA), and implemented by AECOM International Development (AECOM).
