Policy and planning

Developing countries range from large, rapidly-growing economies such as China, India and Brazil to small, very low-emitting economies. For the first of these, embracing climate compatible development means adapting to climate change and improving human development while reducing the carbon intensity of economic growth. In smaller, more vulnerable economies, adapting to climate change and reducing poverty are at the heart of climate compatible development. But there are also opportunities to avoid emissions by identifying low-carbon development paths. To transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient future, developing countries need strong policy, institutional and financial frameworks, as well as a good evidence base and technical skills. CDKN’s vision is to see national frameworks for climate compatible development that are fully driven and supported by a wide range of stakeholders – frameworks based on long-term commitment, and with well-prioritised areas for action.
