The Low Emission Capacity Building Programme is a global initiative to support national climate change mitigation efforts, low emission development strategies and enhanced measuring, reporting and verification systems.
The Low Emission Capacity Building Programme works in tandem with the UNDP Green, Low-Emission and Climate-Resilient Development Unit to support multilevel country efforts that intertwine climate change with development choices and actions involving multiple sectors, stakeholders, and ecosystems. Through this arrangement, UNDP seeks to develop strong partnerships to deliver capacity building and support to countries in the area of climate change.
This collaborative programme aims to strengthen technical and institutional capacities at the country level, while at the same time facilitating inclusion and coordination of the public and private sector in national initiatives addressing climate change. It does so by utilizing the global networks and substantial experience that UNDP has established through our wide portfolio of projects and programmes around the world.
