Towards a sustainable future
We strengthen the capacity of developing countries to change their path towards a low-carbon future, because climate change demands that we grow in a different way. That means ensuring they have better access to carbon finance to pay for low-carbon development and that they are skilled putting that money to work where it is needed. That includes driving private and public finance towards cleaner investments, from biomass power plants in Thailand to CFC-free refrigerators in Brazil. We help ensure they can put policies into action – like protecting their forests - that will lead them towards a green, sustainable future. In doing this, UNDP helps developing countries to contribute to global efforts to combat climate change.
