This short flyer explores the gender dimensions of climate finance mechanisms, focusing on the Clean Development Mechanism. If utilized properly, the CDM can promote sustainable development in host countries by bringing new technologies into communities, which often leads to employment opportunities and environmental benefits (e.g., improved air quality or decreased waste).
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.
This note offers guidance for national and regional human development report teams that seek to investigate and strengthen the human development gains associated with migration in their countries. The note offers suggestions on how a report on mobility can be refined and conceptualized based on a given national context, as well as on how mobility can be considered in reports on related themes.
A description of the project 'Integrating climate change risks and opportunities into national development processes and United Nations country programming' (RIOCPNU) in Nicaragua. Nicaragua is vulnerable to climate change due to the increase in frequency and intensity of extreme climate events, including floods, landslides, drought, and tides; all of which place the country's development at risk.
This note has been prepared in response to the growing demand for guidelines to support the work of report teams and partners in integrating human development analysis and advocacy into more equitable, sustainable and climate-resilient development planning and policy debates. It provides practical suggestions on ways that reports can complement existing climate change responses.
A description of the project: 'Integrating climate change risks and opportunities into national development processes and United Nations country programming’ in Colombia (English version). Colombia is a country that is especially vulnerable to climate change given that its population has settled in areas prone to flooding and in unstable lands of the high sierras.
This paper outlines a climate finance framework to assist developing countries to move to low-emissions, climate-resilient growth paths. UNDP is proposing a country-driven, multi-stakeholder climate finance framework to assist developing countries to scale up efforts to address climate change in a way that strengthens and advances national development priorities.
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.
