The handbook and online ‘train the trainers’ course will cover the toolkit modules in-depth and provide capacity-strengthening to Youth Organizations and NGOs working with youth to train their peers. From May 2023, the Youth Organizations will train 10,000 youth on climate adaptation policy and action.
