On July 2011 ITU became a partner of the One UN Training Service Platform for
Climate Change (UN CC:Learn), an
initiative driven by a partnership of 29 UN agencies to support Member States,
international and regional organizations and other development partners in
designing and implementing an effective approach of sustainable learning to
address climate change.
The UN CC:Learn platform, launched at the 2009 UN Conference on Climate Change
(COP-15), is part of the “One
UN Climate Change Action Framework” of the UN System Chief Executives Board
for Coordination (CEB). Through this online platform UN CC:Learn partners
contribute to the implementation of Article 6 of the UNFCCC on training and
education, fostering knowledge-sharing by delivering and evaluating climate
change learning activities and materials at the global, regional and national
level. Access to the online database of materials is free of charge and open to
any stakeholder. The platform also includes a section of news related with
partners of the initiative.
As a first step in this collaboration, ITU background resources on ICTs and
climate change have been added to the UN CC:Learn library. Future collaboration
will include the development of a One UN Training Package on climate change, as
well as new introductory and advanced learning packages on specific climate
change issues. Click
