ICT and Climate Change Training Programme (ICT&CCTP)

The ICT&CC TP is a programme being developed under the auspices of the ITU Academy. It consists of a set of high level training materials and covers a range of topics in ICT & Climate Change.

The ICT&CC TP comprises an overview module, 6 foundation modules and 15 advanced modules. The overview module provides a brief summary and introduction to each module of the training programme. The foundation modules introduce the concepts behind ICT & Climate Change and provide students with a sufficient level of detail to understand these. The advanced modules provide students with a much greater depth of understanding and more practical experience in each subject area.

The modules are the following:

OM0: Overview Module.

FM1: Introduction to ICT & Climate Change.

FM2: Roles of Stakeholders in ICT & Climate Change.

FM3: Developing ICT Service Provider Strategies.

FM4: Assessing the Impact of ICT on Climate Change.

FM5: Applying Green ICT Strategies.

FM6: E-waste and the Circular Economy.

AM1.1: Climate Modelling

AM1.2: The role of Satellite & Radio Communication in Environmental Modelling

AM1.3: Global/Regional Frameworks for GHG Emissions Reduction

AM2.1: Policy Makers & Regulators

AM2.2: TSPs and IT Service Providers

AM3.1: Telecom Service Provider (TSP) Strategies

AM3.2: IT Service Provider Strategies (including Cloud Services)

AM3.3: Adaptation for Infrastructure Providers

AM4.1: How to carry out a full LCA

AM4.2: How to assess the Carbon Footprints of Sectors, Countries and Regions

AM5.1: Improving the Energy Efficiency of ICT Products and Services

AM5.2: GHG reductions in the Power Sector

AM5.3: Decarbonizing Transport

AM5.4: Smart & Sustainable Cities

AM6: The End-of-Life Stage in Life Cycle Assessment


The ICT&CC TP is designed for anyone who would like to enhance their professional knowledge while working in an area related to ICT & Climate Change, for example, environmental engineering, energy efficiency, climate modelling or adaptation to climate change. The training programme would be aimed at the broadening of skills in this complex field and could be taken by any professional who has previously graduated with a first-level university degree (e.g. Bachelor of Science). Students entering the ICT&CC TP may be from different institutional levels, from technical to managerial, and from different backgrounds (engineering, legal, regulatory, economic, etc.).


We wish to invite all stakeholders, especially training and academic institutions to partner with us. Partnerships can be established in the following ways:

1.- Participation in the programme delivery
2.- Accreditation/certification of the programme.

Those individual, organizations and academic institutions who may be interested in cooperating with the ITU Academy on delivering the ICT&CC TP are welcome to contact the coordinating entity – Human Capacity Building Division at This email address is being protected from spambots.
