To address climate change effectively and achieve the MDGs, development policies and plans must take into account climate change impacts. In an effort to strengthen integrated policies which reflect the interests of the most vulnerable communities, UNDP supports policy dialogue on the risks of climate change to development. This includes engagement with a range of relevant stakeholders, from key line Ministries and parliamentarians, to the private sector, media, and civil society. UNDP also supports awareness raising activities and increases national capacity to co-ordinate Ministerial views on climate change, participate in ongoing UNFCCC processes, and stay updated on the development of the convention.

UNDP supports activities which seek to incorporate climate change risks and opportunities at two levels: national strategies and plans and UNDP/UN development assistance. This is done through supporting climate-resilient development across UNDP’s practice areas, including poverty reduction, democratic governance and crisis prevention among others.
