National project teams manage the preparation of green, low-emission and climate-resilient development strategies (Green LECRDS). UNDP Country Offices, UNDP Environment and Energy Technical Advisors based in UNDP Regional Centres in Bangkok, Bratislava, Pretoria, and Panama, and the global UNDP Territorial Approach to Climate Change (TACC) Facility provide project oversight and quality assurance.

The TACC Facility is comprised of a global support team of technical advisors specializing in climate modeling, greenhouse gas inventories, mitigation analysis, vulnerability assessments, climate economics and finance. It operates with an international network of global and regional centers of excellence, a sample of which can be found below.

Climate/biophysical modeling and carbon accounting partners: University of Cape Town, Columbia University and NASA/Goddard, among others.

Socio-economic modeling partners (under negotiation): Yale University, Economy and Environment Program for Southeast Asia (EEPSEA), and Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, among others.

The TACC Facility is complemented by the UNDP Partnership Bureau’s Hub for Innovative Partnerships, which is dedicated to building partnerships and mobilizing resources to support the provision of Green LECRDS technical assistance to developing country governments.
