Guidance note: How to develop a national climate change learning strategy
Type: Handbook / Guide
Geographical coverage: International
Implementing Entity: UNITAR
Language: English
Cost: unspecified
More than 50 countries have expressed interest in developing a national climate change learning strategy. In response to this demand the UN CC:Learn Secretariat has released a Guidance Note which provides methodological and organizational suggestions for developing such a strategy. The Guidance Note also responds to the UNFCCC Doha Work Programme which mandates States to prepare a national strategy on Article 6 of the Convention (dealing with climate change education, training and public awareness-raising).

The Note is the product of a three year pilot phase, including five national UN CC:Learn projects to "Strengthen Human Resource Capacities and Skills to Address Climate Change". The five pilot countries are Benin, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Malawi, and Uganda. The Note has been developed with valuable input from members of the UN CC:Learn Steering Group and discussions at several international and regional meetings.
