General Background and Organizational Context:
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience, and resources to help people build a better life. On the ground in 176 countries and territories, UNDP works with national level partners to seek solutions to global and national development challenges.
UNDP Environment and Energy Group (EEG) is based in UNDP’s Bureau for Development Policy and is responsible for providing leadership and technical support toward delivery of the Environment and Sustainable Development pillar of UNDP’s Strategic Plan. Its main focus is to help countries develop capacity to manage and mainstream environment into national, local, global, and regional policy and practice in support of sustainable development. The principal areas of work are in policy development and support, market mechanisms, adaptation to climate change, and local governance of resources, including energy.
While many developing countries recognise these fundamental arguments, they often face significant institutional and technical capacity challenges in making informed investment choices. Launched in 2011, the Low Emission Capacity Building Programme is a collaborative initiative between the European Commission (EC), the Government of Germany (BMU), the Government of Australia, AusAid and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The Programme’s overall objectives are to strengthen institutional and technical capacities in participating countries in order to:
