The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have released a publication titled - Climate Change Starters Guidebook -, which is intended to serve as a starting point for mainstreaming climate change education into curricula lesson plans and programs.

Aimed towards education planners and practitioners, the Guidebook is intended to provide support in developing the understanding of the science of climate change, observed and anticipated impacts, and possible responses. The Guidebook also covers the impacts on society, including poverty, health, migration, gender and ethics. It includes a section on responding to climate change, focusing on mitigation and adaptation, as well as international responses. The Guidebook continues by discussing education for climate change, touching on education for adaptation, mitigation, sustainable development and disaster risk reduction. It also highlights political and economic issues.
