To better understand the magnitude of funds needed to tackle climate change now and in the long term, developing countries are undertaking assessments of investment and financial flows to address climate change for selected key sectors in a groundbreaking collaboration with UNDP.
The UNDP Environment & Energy Group launched a $6 million global project, Capacity Development for Policy Makers to Address Climate Change, in May 2008 to run in parallel with the "Bali Road Map" - the UNFCCC negotiations on long-term co-operative action on climate change.
The overall goals of the project are twofold:
- To increase national capacity to co-ordinate Ministerial views, participate in the UNFCCC process, and negotiate positions within the timeframe of the Bali Road Map; and
- To assess investment and financial flows to address climate change for selected key sectors.
Nineteen countries are participating in the global project from across all regions: Algeria, Bangladesh, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Gambia, Honduras, Liberia, Namibia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Niger, Paraguay, Peru, St. Lucia, Togo, Turkmenistan, and Uruguay.
The participating countries complete the following project process:
Engage key line ministries
Connect practitioners from different institutions
Select and hire I&FF team
Agree main assessment parameters e.g.: Sectoral scope, data sources and gaps, scenario inputs etc.
Conduct I&FF assessments
(National teams backstopped by regional centres of excellence)
