UN CC:learn is an initiative that supports knowledge sharing, promotes the development of common climate change learning materials, and coordinates learning interventions through collaboration of UN agencies and other partners. At the national level, UN CC:Learn supports countries in developing and implementing national climate change learning strategies.
The initiative was launched at the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Summit. UN CC:Learn has completed a three year pilot phase (2011-2013) working in five pilot countries. It has then entered into a further three year phase (2014-2017) to include additional countries, new learning products and an up-graded learning platform. In less than two years, the UN CC:Learn e-learn platform gathered 30 000 registrations from all parties of the UNFCCC.
The platform is supported by the The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SDC.
