Bringing together the low-carbon and resilience agendas: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Rwanda

Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Rwanda are at the
forefront of developing national plans that address
elements of both climate change mitigation and
adaptation with a low carbon resilient development
(LCRD) agenda. This working paper explores the
experience of LCRD planning in each country
using stakeholder interviews, analysis of policy
documents and surveys to understand how
this agenda is emerging in practice, and what
ideas and discourses are shaping the policy
development. Establishing a national consensus
on what is understood by LCRD is shown to be
important in building stakeholder support for any
proposed LCRD agenda, as is clearly defining
which co-benefits are being targeted.
