The United Nations Development Programme is an international organization with a strong global presence and mandate concentrated on development, with a focus on sustainable development, climate change and disaster resilience, and governance. UNDP works in partnership with entities, such as national governments, United Nations agencies, civil society organizations, and development banks, in order to support the coordinated delivery of financing to achieve transformational impact in the areas of mitigation and adaptation. Its work in adaptation covers all developing countries in all regions and includes a strong portfolio in least developed countries, small island developing states and African states. Adaptation activities include integrated climate change strategies, national adaptation plans, national planning and budgeting frameworks; cross-sectoral climate-resilient livelihoods; climate-resilient integrated water resource and coastal management; ecosystem-based adaptation; and climate-resilient energy and infrastructure. In mitigation, UNDP supports developing countries in order to create enabling environments for investment in mitigation technologies and land-uses at scale, with activities in: low-carbon energy access solutions (rural mini-grids, bio-energy and green charcoal supply chains), grid-connected renewables, energy efficient buildings and appliances, and reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. Bringing with it, its experience in climate change mitigation and adaptation programming and its on-the-ground presence in developing countries, UNDP sought accreditation to the GCF.
