This free 5-workshop (approx. three hours per workshop), online instructor-led course will provide learners with a better understanding of climate change, the role of adaptation in the design and construction of drainage works to manage risk and impacts, and an understanding of how science-based information and tools can be used in the design and adaptation of agriculture water management projects.
