One UN Training Service Platform on Climate Change UN CC:Learn
The UN CC:Learn initiative was started in 2009 as a collaboration of UN agencies committed to support and contribute to effective, results-oriented and sustainable learning to address climate change and related development challenges. UN CC:Learn includes three Programme Areas which are closely linked to each other: I. Knowledge Management and Networking II. Development of a One UN Climate Change Learning Package III. Strengthening Human Resource Capacities in Partner Countries The three Programme Areas collectively contribute to the implementation of Article 6 of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the UNFCCC Capacity Development Framework. UN CC:Learn also contributes to the implementation of the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness by supporting country-driven processes, fostering co-ordination and alignment of external support, and promoting a results-oriented approach to climate change learning. UN CC:Learn is included in the “One UN Climate Change Action Framework” of the UN System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) through the High Level Committee on Programmes (HLCP). To date, 33 multilateral organizations are collaborating in UN CC:Learn. A UN CC:Learn Steering Group comprised of UN partner agencies provides guidance for UN CC:Learn activities. The Secretariat is provided by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). Funding for the 2011-2013 pilot implementation phase of UN CC:Learn is provided by the Government of Switzerland.
