Report on the Green Growth E-Learning Platform: ESCAP-developed tool for greening economic growth

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the history and progress in the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) Green Growth Capacity Development Programme to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the programme, with a special emphasis on the online e-learning component. Since 2011, when the online e- learning facility has been first launched, there have been several advancements on the ICT market. This can be seen especially from appearance of numerous online e-learning platforms in other UN agencies, as well as other non-UN institutions. This defines the need to critically evaluate UNESCAP on-line e-learning facility and identify the components that should be upgraded to effectively utilize and reflect all the achievements in the online e-learning industry, as well as address recommendations from capacity building participants concerning the operation of facility.

Apart from analyzing and assessing the on-line e-learning platform developed by UNESCAP, this report provides a comprehensive assessment of similar courses available on the market, making a comparative analysis of advantages and disadvantages of each to integrate the best practices into the upcoming upgrading process of e-learning.
