In the context of an uncertain, contested and complex environment, successfully integrating climate change into economic development is critical. For integration of climate approaches into development to be successful, relevant actors need to come together to create change within the economic systems they form a part of. This implies people working on new problems, in new ways, and in new partnerships. Leaders must be equipped with a new set of abilities and ways of thinking, collaborating across traditional boundaries, experimenting and learning together to build the equitable and sustainable future we want to live in. Capability, whether in people or in their institutions or policies, is a fundamental precondition to achieving this goal in the long term.
