The problem

Climate change is one of the world’s most urgent problems, yet those nations most affected are often the least equipped to participate in policy processes that will determine their future.

The solution

Since 2008, Diplo has initiated several conferences and events, and created a new online course with scholarship opportunities for diplomats, civil servants and academics from small and developing states.  We have also developed a Climate Change Building illustration for use in publications, awareness building, and training.


  • High levels of interaction in the course led to the establishment of an active and vibrant online community.
  • Others have contributed to and translated our unique illustration, making this a key resource.
