Released on the eve of the Paris climate change conference (COP21), this report – a mix of infographics and country case examples – outlines UNDP’s decades-long support to partner countries to tackle climate change. For the first time covering UNDP’s entire climate change approach, including mitigation and sustainable energy, climate change adaptation, forestry, and support to INDCs, the report is a comprehensive look at what is now a US$ 2.3 billion portfolio across 140 countries.
The Community Water Initiative (CWI) has funded successful projects in some of the most vulnerable communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America.

This report presents the use a combination of climate and hydrological models to assess the possible consequences of future global warming on the water resources in the Pungwe catchment up until 2050. By generating on information on future trends in water resource availability in the basin the project seeks to identify possible adaptation needs over the coming years.
The UNDP report was launched during the 14th International Anti Corruption Conference in Bangkok in November 2010. It maps out major corruption risks in the areas of adaptation and REDD+ and makes recommendations to identify actions to minimize these risks.
The briefing document is designed to provide policy makers with key background information – and important insights into current proposals under negotiation – on the four Bali Action Plan building blocks (i.e., mitigation, adaptation, technology, and finance) and land use, land-use change and forestry.
