The topics are: Climate Change Mitigation that has 3 sub-topics: greenhouse gases inventory (M1) for 2 days, baseline calculation of GHG inventory M2) for another 2 days and discussion on GHG inventory, baseline and climate mitigation action plan (M3) for 3 days. Gorontalo previously had received all three (M1-M3) climate change mitigation training between August 2021 and April 2022.

The second topic of CRIC training is Climate Change Adaptation that includes two sub-topics: Climate change science basis, vulnerability and risks include calculation (A1) for 4 days and discussion of the vulnerability and risks as well as climate Adaptation plan (A2) for 3 days.
