About

By shedding light on the causes and impacts of climate change, UNSSC’s learning programmes contain important resources for improving climate literacy.

Courses such as, “The Paris Agreement on Climate Change as a Development Agenda”, “Climate Sensitive Programming for Sustaining Peace,” “Circular Economy and the 2030 Agenda”, “UN Summer Academy”, and “Building Back Better: Strengthening capacities of Schools of Public Administration in a Post-Covid-19 World”, demonstrate the interlinkages and interdependencies between sustainable development, peace and security and climate change. This leads to more informed decisions around policy and programming.
