UNDP's current portfolio of cross-cutting capacity development projects, which implement priority recommendations of countries' National Capacity Self-Assessment (NCSA) Final Report and Action Plans also complement Green LECRDS objectives through strategic policy interventions, such as:

  • Developing and strengthening the use of global environmental indicators to measure countries' achievements under the Framework Convention on Climate Change (e.g., Morocco)
  • Strengthening the use of natural resource valuation to improve decision-making for the global environment (e.g., Jamaica, Moldova)
  • Piloting environmental fiscal reform to improve local and regional actions to meet global environmental priorities (e.g., Kyrgyzstan)
  • Strengthening targeted institutional capacities to meet global environmental objectives (e.g., Belize, Ghana, Jordan, Namibia, Philippines, Seychelles, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan)
  • Mainstreaming global environmental priorities into national policies, plans, programmes and decision-making (e.g., Egypt, Lao PDR, Montenegro, Nicaragua, Romania)
  • Strengthening local and regional governance capacities to meet global environmental priorities (e.g., Bhutan, Bulgaria)
  • Strengthening management information systems to improve decision-making for the global environment (e.g., Armenia)

By leveraging synergies with ongoing capacity development and climate activities, UNDP is well poised to support countries to transform their development trajectories into ones that are low carbon and climate resilient.
