Online Learning for Diplomats from Small Island States
DiploFoundation was one of two organisations invited to present their
training activities in the field of climate change at the UN Special Event
on Climate Change Diplomacy held at the United Nations Headquarters in New
York on July 9, 2008. Climate change is becoming a key issue in a diverse
range of global and regional negotiation processes. Small island states in
particular suffer from a lack of trained people who can work on climate
change issues within their specific fields. Panelists at the meeting
concurred that online training offers an opportunity for governments of
small island states to address this human resources challenge. The event
was co-chaired by the Maltese and Swiss Permanent Representatives to the
United Nations, Ambassador Saviour Borg and Ambassador Peter Maurer, and
was honoured by the presence of the President of the 62nd Session of the UN
General Assembly, H.E. Mr. Srgjan Kerim.
