UN CC:Learn in Uganda

Strengthening Human Resources and Skills to Address Climate Change

Uganda is highly vulnerable to climate change and variability as its economy and the wellbeing of its people are tightly bound to climate. In order to strengthen individual skills and institutional capacities to foster green, low emission 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 being implemented over a period of 23 months in 2012-2013. Find a summary of the project here.

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

Uganda’s Minister of Water and Environment launched the National Climate Change Learning Strategy on 28 June 2013.

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 Uganda to support a green and climate resilient transformation..
