Investing in People and Learning to Foster a Climate Resilient and Green Transition


Ambassadors for Climate Change Learning are individuals that have played a key role in the national UN CC:Learn pilot projects and are motivated to share their technical knowledge and experiences with new partner countries on a bilateral or regional basis. They also contribute to strengthening the global visibility and recognition of the UN CC:Learn partnership. Ambassadors can be drawn either from participating countries or global partners.

“Human capacity is the most important variable that determines whether our country is able to address the challenge of climate change and achieve sustainable development.”

-Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu, Minister of Water and Environment of Uganda-
