Schools of Turkmenistan received new manuals on adaptation to climate change

School teachers of Turkmenistan will use in their work new methodological manuals on adaptation to climate change. The manuals were developed by the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan, the National Institute of Education, together with UNICEF, to further support the efforts of the country's government to implement the climate change and environment agenda.

These manuals are designed to facilitate teaching practice by incorporating climate change adaptation into the five environment-related subjects of primary and secondary education. These are natural science, ecology, geography, basic life skills and agriculture.

UNICEF has already donated 8,000 copies of new manuals to the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan for use in the country's schools. This is the first experience in Central Asia in publishing such manuals for secondary schools.
