This guidebook is part of a series of manuals, guidebooks and toolkits that draws upon the experience and information generated by the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) support for climate change adaptation and mitigation projects in some 140 countries over the past decade. These resources are intended to enable project managers, UNDP Country Offces and developing country government decision-makers to acquaint themselves with a variety of methodologies most appropriate to their development contexts in support of their transition to green, low-emission and climate resilient development.
In a flexible and non-prescriptive manner, the reports offers detailed guidance for the identification of key stakeholders and establishment of participatory planning and coordination frameworks; generation of climate change profiles and vulnerability scenarios; identification and prioritization of mitigation and adaptation options; assessment of financing requirements; and development of green low-emission and climate-resilient roadmaps for project development, policy instruments and financial flows. They can be accessed at www.undp.org/energyandenvironment/climatestrategies.
This publication focuses on the design and establishment of National Climate Funds to support countries to collect, coordinate, blend and account for climate finance.
