UN CC:Learn in Benin

Strengthening Human Resources and Skills to Address Climate Change

Climate change is a major development concern for Benin due to its impacts on human health, food security, economic development, physical infrastructure and water resources. In order to strengthen individual skills and institutional capacities to foster green and climate resilient development, the country is implementing a national UN CC:Learn Project. Through the Project the country is taking a strategic and results-oriented approach to climate change learning with involvement of key sectors and stakeholders.

The National Coordination Mechanism for the UN CC:Learn Project in Benin includes key Ministries, learning institutions, civil society and the private sector.

Benin has developed a national strategy that promotes climate change learning through formal and non-formal education. 

Key elements of the Project include the development of a National Climate Change Learning Strategy and the implementation of a number of Priority Actions.

The UN CC:Learn Project aims to provide value added to existing UN initiatives in Benin to support a green and climate resilient transformation.
