Country Pilot Projects to Strengthen Human Resources and Skills to Address Climate Change
In order to support countries in taking a strategic and results-oriented approach to climate change learning, UN CC:Learn is supporting Pilot Projects to Strengthen Human Resources and Skills to Address Climate Change. Through the development of a National Strategy partner countries identify, through a country driven process, priority action to strengthen learning and skills development. With support provided by the Swiss Development Cooperation, five pilot projects in Benin, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Malawi and Uganda are implemented in 2011-2013.
The pilot projects are directly linked to and make a contribution to the implementation of Article 6 of the UNFCCC and the individual capacity development pillar of the UNFCCC Capacity Development Framework. They also apply the core principles of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness which emphasize local ownership, empowerment of national institutions and alignment of donor support.
A first round of applications for the pilot projects was closed in April 2011. The UN CC:Learn Steering Group reviewed applications from 23 interested countries and selected Benin, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Malawi and Uganda for the UN CC:Learn pilot implementation phase 2011-2013. Governments that did not participate in this first round, but that are interested in exploring opportunities to become a pilot country, are welcome to contact the UN CC:Learn Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
