UNDP-Low Emission Climate Resilient Development Strategies (LECRDS) Guidance Manuals and Toolkits
"UNDP has been producing a series of manuals, guidebooks and toolkits that draw upon the experience and information generated by UNDP’s support for climate change adaptation and mitigation projects and National Communications to the UNFCCC in some 140 countries over the past decade. They are intended to enable project managers, UNDP Country Offices, and developing country government decision-makers to acquaint themselves with a variety of methodologies most appropriate to their development contexts in support of the preparation of LECRDS. In a flexible and non-prescriptive manner, they offer detailed step-by-step guidance for the identification of key stakeholders and establishment of participatory planning and coordination frameworks; generation of climate change profiles and vulnerability scenarios; and identification and prioritization of mitigation and adaptation options. These steps serve as the basis for envisioning development trajectories resilient to possible climate outcomes; assessment of financing requirements; and development of low-emission and climate-resilient roadmap for project development, policy instruments, and financial flows."
