Charting a New Low-Carbon Route to Development

01 Dec 2011


Climate change planning is an important task not only for national but also for regional governments to move the climate change and development agendas forward. That is why this primer introduces a set of approaches to help sub-national authorities through the whole process of designing their climate change strategy and action plan (Integrated Territorial Climate Plan). It is divided into two parts - Part 1: Scaling up efforts to address climate change and Part II: Preparing an Integrated Territorial Climate Plan. When tailored to specific circumstances, this publication could help balance the pursuit of both climate change mitigation/adaptation and the investments needed to accelerate poverty reduction and development.
