New resources on climate change and development

Why - and how - should thinking on climate change and human development move beyond the conventional 'boxes' of adaptation and mitigation? What experience exists on planning for and putting climate compatible development into practice, and what can we learn from such experience? Can REDD+ provide opportunities for countries to tackle poverty, while conserving forests?

These questions are explored in a new series of policy briefs from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), now available for download on our website:

Defining Climate Compatible Development - by Tom Mitchell and Simon Maxwell

Planning for Climate Compatible Development, Lessons from Experience - by Nanki Kaur and Jessica Ayers

Can REDD+ Support Climate Compatible Development - by Leo Peskett

Moving forward on Climate Change Planning, Lessons from Orissa - by Merlyn Hedger and Virinder Sharma
