This brochure summarizes how the United Nations Development Programme promotes pro-poor and pro-growth adaptation that encourages sustainable economic development and livelihoods in the face of climate change.
The Africa Adaptation Programme supports 21 countries across the African continent in incorporating climate change risks and opportunities into national development processes. The Programme helps countries to establish an enabling environment and develop the capacity required at local and national levels.
This brief discusses the nexus between climate change and the third Millennium Development Goal: to promote gender equality and empower women (MDG 3). It describes how initiatives financed by the Global Environment Facility have integrated gender perspectives into climate change adaptation and highlight examples from the current EEG/GEF portfolio.
The Report showcases the UNDP-GEF adaptation portfolio, focusing on both the principles underlying the UNDP-GEF approach to adaptation programming and the key processes involved in removing barriers to successful adaptation measures. The report highlights emerging achievements of UNDP-GEF initiatives around the world and explores the future of low-emission climate-resilient development.
This guidance document intends to provide countries with a practical tool on using climate information in their decision-making processes. This guide addresses these issues of adaptation planning under uncertainty of observed and projected climate change.
Building on lessons from earlier TNA efforts, the updated TNA Handbook offers a systematic approach for conducting TNA in order to identify, evaluate and prioritize mitigation and adaptation technologies.
