Sharing knowledge across disciplines to build resilience and manage risk

Interdisciplinary training and development

The Walker Academy was established in response to needs from the climate services community, as part of Walker's commitment to capacity development

Through a number of our innovative courses, the Walker Academy is providing the next generation with the necessary capacity to tackle complex inter-related challenges in climate and development 

The Walker Academy has trained over 40 participants in interdisciplinary research and knowledge synthesis over eight countries already!   



The Climate Services Academy (CSAT) is a new initiative to train producers of climate information and other data across different sectors (such as disaster, water, agriculture, health and energy) in how to synthesise evidence. It provides practical real-world experience of the synthesis of research into evidence to inform policy and business decision-making, giving participants the opportunity to gain the skills needed to successfully do this.
