Background

The Dominican Republic is one of five pilot countries that implement a UN CC:Learn Project on Strengthening Human Resources and Skills to Address Climate Change in 2011-2013. The projects aim at supporting countries in taking a strategic and results-oriented approach to climate change learning. The project in the Dominican Republic is led by the National Council for Climate Change and Clean Development Mechanism (NCCCCDM).

Through a multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral process the country developed a National Strategy to Strengthen Human Resources and Skills to Advance Green, Low Emissions and Climate Resilient Development. The capacity-building workshop is part of the second phase of the national UN CC:Learn pilot project aiming at initiating implementation of the National Strategy.

Targeted Audience

The six-day workshop brings together delegates, education planners, curriculum development specialists, instructors training teachers and teachers from the Education Ministry, Teacher Training Institutions, Universities and NGOs.
