Our principles


Country-driven Process
Ranging from national climate plans (NDCs) to mitigation actions, it is countries themselves who decide how to address climate and development issues. Technical support is custom-tailored to the respective needs of the country.

Participatory Approach
Initiatives are developed based on a consultation with key-stakeholders from both public and private sectors, as well as civil society.

Integrated Vision
Countries are encouraged to take a holistic view to NDC implementation, addressing both climate and development objectives.

Inspire Learning
We disseminate interesting ideas and good practices through peer-to-peer knowledge networks and forums, reaching beyond environmental stakeholders to advance cutting-edge climate and development solutions.
