Data is not just numbers. It is critical for research communication, advocacy and decision-making. Data on air pollution, climate change, water, agriculture, urbanisation and economy, when put together, paint a larger picture of the situation in terms of sustainability and development.
With less than eight years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, climate change poses an existential threat to achieving these and to humanity. So, it is the biggest social, political, economic and environmental challenge facing the world today.
The evidence of this existential threat to humanity is clearly seen in the data that is emerging every year. If understood and visualised well, data can become an effective basis for actions to arrest climate change or adapt to it.
So, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), one of South Asia’s leading think tanks on the politics of development, environment and climate change, invites you to join its Global Online Certificate Training which focuses specifically on one critical aspect of meeting this challenge: understanding climate and SDGs data, analysing it, and using it to tell climate change and development stories to different stakeholders for action.
It will unravel what the numbers really say, the stories that can be told using them, and help you visualize them using state-of-the-art visualisation and communication tools and methods.
The programme will also offer insights into the global framework and politics on climate change, extreme weather events and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
By the end of the course, participants will be able to analyse the data on these concepts and prepare impactful stories, dashboards and communication collaterals for different stakeholders to trigger action
