Towards a National Climate Change Learning Strategy
Our work in Kenya, the UN CC:Learn Project to Strengthen Human Resources and Skills to Advance the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) is now underway.
The project is engaging a range of stakeholders and sectors. It is expected to inform and lead to the development of Kenya’s national climate change learning strategy.
Building on a background report, a virtual National Planning Workshop took place on 27 July and 11 August 2020. The assessment of learning needs and delivery capacity was concluded in December 2020. The mid-term workshop to develop the Learning Action Plan for the Strategy was held on 12 and 13 January 2021. A draft Climate Change Learning Strategy has then been prepared.
In parallel, a few initial priority learning actions have been undertaken, including a training on climate change diplomacy and a workshop on the integration of climate change in education. A debate on climate change learning with prominent speakers will take place on national TV on 27 May 2021.

Our work in Kenya is coordinated by the Climate Change Directorate in the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and the Kenya Climate Change Working Group (KCCWG).
