Toward Climate-Smart Education Systems: A 7-Dimension Framework for Action

Building on resources and efforts led by different education partners, this paper proposes a seven-dimension framework to leverage potential entry points and address gaps within national education systems to strengthen the resilience and relevance of education to climate change and environmental degradation. It highlights opportunities for leveraging the role of education in wider climate change, disaster risk and environmental efforts. The paper also highlights existing frameworks and approaches related to the seven dimensions, where available, that policy makers can use to guide sector dialogue.
