The Down to Earth: Territorial Approach to Climate Change (TACC) project is part of a partnership between the United Nations and sub-national governments for fostering climate friendly development at the sub-national level. This partnership is a collaborative effort involving UNDP, UNEP and eight associations of regions.
Working in Colombia, Peru, Senegal, Uganda and Uruguay, the TACC project is supporting the integration of climate change adaptation and mitigation measures into sustainable development planning and programming in developing countries by:
Developing partnerships with UN and specialised agencies, national and sub-national governments, centres of excellence and regional technical institutions, and the private sector;
Making available methodologies and tools for long-term climate change participatory planning to regions and cities and sharing best practices;
Providing regions with information about climate change challenges and opportunities and technical and financial solutions;
Providing technical support to up to 20 regions for the preparation of regional climate change plans, including identification of priority mitigation and adaptation measures; and
Providing technical support to up to 20 regions to identify policy and financing instruments to implement priority climate change measures
