It is clear that climate change is affecting everyone, everywhere, but not equally. Just as the risks and impacts of climate change induced hazards vary between countries, so do the capacities of countries to address them. Developing countries often have less capacity and resources to reduce emissions, adapt to climate impacts, and manage the uncertainty of climate risk, whilst they are confronted with pressing development challenges.
We must scale up action now in order for countries to deliver zero-carbon economic growth and development for all.
UNDP’s vision is a zero-carbon path that delivers climate-resilient, sustainable development. Our mission is to strengthen the capacities of developing countries to realize that vision.
