Planning climate compatible development: lessons from experience
Effective planning can both help make development resilient to the impacts
of climate change and help policymakers identify opportunities to harness
development benefits from lowering emissions. In developing countries, such
planning requires the support of international finance, technology transfer
and capacity building. Identifying national priorities for climate compatible
development that combines adaptation and low emissions development
objectives, while meeting the requirements of international support
frameworks, involves balancing upward and downward accountability.
This briefing examines lessons learnt from different country-scale action
planning under such dual accountability frameworks.
