As countries begin to explore opportunities and challenges of transitioning towards low emissions climate resilient development (LECRD), UNDP has aligned a number of support services to assist partner countries to develop LECRD Strategies. The framework that is currently being adopted by UNDP (captured in the 2009 publication Charting a New Low-Carbon Route to Development) is premised on the notion that the process of development - the structural transformation of an economy into a technologically advanced state both in production and consumption - can be done in such a way that it promotes low emissions and ecosystems conservation while meeting the objectives of resilience, sustainability, equity, and above all, multi-dimensional poverty reduction. The framework explicitly entails a multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral approach to support nationally owned action, which is part of UNDP's added value given its broad scope of expertise.

In line with this framework, UNDP is implementing a multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral initiative involving several of the UNDP's thematic and cross-cutting practice teams from the Bureau of Development Policy: Energy and Environment Group (EEG), Poverty Group (PG), Capacity Development Group (CDG) and Gender Group. The focus of this initiative is on Climate Resilient Development, and its specific aim is twofold: a) conceptualize and assess the linkages between climate risks/vulnerabilities and pro-poor growth/human development and b) provide a menu of potential policy options for countries to consider for effectively managing the transition to pro-poor LECRD. Key to achieving these objectives is capacity development, UNDP's overarching contribution to its partner countries. UNDP will support the strengthening of capacities to operate in a climate resilient context.
