Supporting Integrated Climate Change Strategies

The UNDP supports countries to formulate Integrated Climate Change Strategies that will assist national and sub-national governments to develop and strengthen policies, institutions, capacities and knowledge for integrated green, low-emission and climate resilient development. It also involves utilising a full range of supportive financing mechanisms to support that development.
