Blending Climate Finance through National Climate Funds

This guidebook is part of a series of manuals, guidebooks and toolkits that draws upon the experience and information generated by the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) support for climate change adaptation and mitigation projects in some 140 countries over the past decade. These resources are intended to enable project managers, UNDP Country O!ces and developing country government decision-makers to acquaint themselves with a variety of methodologies most appropriate to their development contexts in support of their transition to green, low-emission and climateresilient development.

The Emissions Gap Report Are the Copenhagen Accord pledges sufficient to limit global warming to 2°C or 1.5°C?The Emissions Gap Report Are the Copenhagen Accord pledges sufficient to limit global warming to 2°C or 1.5°C?

This publication aims to assess the following questions: are countries' pledges of action collectively consistent with and, if implemented, likely to achieve the 2°C and 1.5°C temperature goals? If not, how big is the gap between emission levels consistent with these temperature goals and the emissions expected as a result of the pledges? In responding to these questions, we are confronted with a series of highly complex issues, which result from scientific and political factors.
