The 'Territorial Approach to Climate Change' (TACC) aims at reducing carbon footprint and increase resilience to climate change impacts in sub-national territories in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The main aims of this project are to raise awareness of sub-national territories worldwide and assist in development and implementation of mitigation and adaptation plans with sub-national plans and strategies.  The training workshop was a joint event co-sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme and Korea Adaptation Centre for Climate Change and organized in coordination with the Regional Climate Change Adaptation Knowledge Platform for Asia (Adaptation Knowledge Platform), to catalyze interest among decision makers at sub-national scale and provide guidance and role of climate resilient plans and programs in the developmental agenda.The outcome of the workshop was that participants learnt about the general causes and effects of climate change and ways to access reliable sources of credible scientific information, available adaptation options, approaches and methods to foster sustained capacity development at the sub-national and local level, including human resource and skills development.
