ITU joins the UN CC:Learn online platform

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.
