  • Review and summarize existing documents such as national strategies and, sectoral development plans for priority topics in work plan
  • Review existing policies and their potential impact on emissions trends, (e.g., REDD+ strategies and programs)
  • Review existing practices and technologies by sector in terms of their potential contributions to development and emissions trends
  • Assess policies that influence future emissions for all sectors, including land use, transportation, energy, governance, and forest and agricultural policies
  • Review existing practices and technologies by sector in terms of their potential contributions to emissions trends (see table 2.1.1)
  • Assessment should includes broad stakeholder consultation for inputs and feedback
