Dominican Republic’s National Strategy

The Vice-President of the Dominican Republic launched the National Strategy to Strengthen Human Resources and Skills to Advance Green, Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development on 7 August 2012 in Santo Domingo. The overall goal of the Strategy is to create a national framework for coordinated and enhanced action to strengthen learning relevant for green, low emission and climate resilient development in the country.

The Strategy sets out a vision for 2030 that “the Dominican society has an education system and implements public policies that generate institutional capacities and human resources to address the challenges of climate change adaptation and mitigation.” The National Climate Change Learning Strategy is directly linked to the National Development Strategy (2030) of the Dominican Republic and other policy instruments which promote a new model of low emission and climate resilient development.

The Strategy is implemented through a National Implementation Platform which facilitates the mobilization of resources, coordinate implementation of Priority Actions, and fosters regular dissemination of information and learning materials among key partners. Download the Strategy…
