The paper Aligning Energy Development and Climate Objectives in Nationally Determined Contributions looks at how four specific developing countries are aligning their energy policies with their NDCs, or missing key opportunities to do so, and they raise questions about how governments could do things differently.
The working paper Budgeting for NDC Action – Initial Lessons from Climate-Vulnerable Countries addresses the following question: are climate change-related expenditures starting to appear in national budgets to secure the early implementation of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)?

This working paper Working Across Scales: Learning from Seven Years of Climate Compatible Development in Asia assesses the value of stimulating climate compatible development initiatives at multiple levels of governance, from the local to the national, as well as the global.
The Raising Risk Awareness (RRA) project uses the latest advances in climate science to understand the role of climate change in the occurrence of extreme weather events in developing countries. The project also considers how such information is communicated between those who undertake the analyses (scientists), those who disseminate the information (media and communicators) and those who ultimately incorporate this information in decision-making (policy-makers). This report provides a summary of the project’s results and learning.
This guide has been developed in response to the interest of developing markets in the potential for capital markets to connect institutional private capital with projects that deliver positive environmental impact.
Although climate change and poverty are increasingly recognised as interlinked global problems, responses often focus on their scientific and economic dimensions only. This research study highlights the advantages and challenges of pursuing climate compatible development, i.e.
Although evidence shows that women are both victims of climate change and important contributors of knowledge and skills in disaster risk, adaptation and mitigation strategies, the gender perspective is largely missing from the design and planning of climate change responses and policies.
Climate change is increasingly recognised as a global crisis, but solutions have so far focused on scientific and economic options, rather than on the human and gender dimensions. Despite the fact that marginalised and poor people, including women, are affected first and hardest by climate change
This brief is based on a research project carried out by Practical Action Consulting with support from the Institute of Development Studies, commissioned by and supported by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), to provide evidence on the advantages and challenges of integrating a
