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 for journalist is part of the second phase of the national UN CC:Learn pilot project aiming at initiating implementation of the National Strategy.

The workshop brings together journalists from different regions of the Dominican Republic and provides an opportunity for strengthening their knowledge and skills in adaptation and mitigation to climate change. The workshop builts upon a study on perceptions on climate change of the Dominican population carried out in 2012.

UN CC:Learn is a collaboration of 33 multilateral organizations with the aim to strengthen human resources, learning and skills development in Member States through country driven processes. It 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). The Secretariat is provided by UNITAR. The pilot implementation phase of UN CC:Learn in 2011-2013 is supported by the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC).
