The Guidebook presents a wealth of experiences and examples taken from the UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation Programme that are being piloted throughout the world. Likewise, the Guidebook presents beneficial lessons drawn from the GEF Small Grants Programme’s many years of ongoing work in over 122 countries.
This Primer introduces a set of approaches to help sub-national authorities through the whole process of designing their Integrated Territorial Climate Plan (ITCP), from setting objectives and participatory arrangements for the preparation of the Plan, to financing priority activities.
