Stronger Human Resources and Improved Skills to Tackle Climate Change

We aim to support our partner countries to take a strategic and results-oriented approach to climate change learning. In collaboration with in-country partners and through multi-stakeholder consultations, countries develop national climate change learning strategies, which set strategic priorities and identify concrete actions to improve learning and skills development for climate change.

With support provided from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), we ran five pilot projects in Benin, the Dominican RepublicIndonesiaMalawi and Uganda between 2011-2013, during the first phase of UN CC:Learn.

For our second phase, spanning from 2014-2017, we ran country projects in Burkina FasoEthiopiaGhana, and Niger.

Projects in Kenya, the Kyrgyz Republic, Zambia and Zimbabwe were carried out during our third phase, from 2017-2021. Projects in Ecuador and Liberia are supported as part of the fourth phase, from 2021-2025.

At the regional level, UN CC:Learn supports climate change learning through the Central American Integration System (or SICA in Spanish) and through a dedicated hub in West Africa.


Guidance Note

This note provides methodological and organizational guidance to countries interested in taking a strategic approach to climate change learning and skills development.

It explains how to develop national or regional climate change learning strategies that help countries make progress in their nationally determined contributions and national adaptation plans. The strategies aim to spur cross-sectoral and multi-stakeholder collaboration and engage national education and training institutions.
