UN CC:Learn in the Dominican Republic

Strengthening Human Resources and Skills to Address Climate Change

As a small Caribbean island state, the Dominican Republic is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. 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 Project is implemented under the leadership of the National Climate Change Council (CNCCMDL), which brings together 11 Government sectors.

The Vice-President of the Dominican Republic launched the National Strategy on 7 August 2012 in Santo Domingo. 

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 the Domincan Republic to support a green and climate resilient transformation.
