To meet the climate challenge, countries need the capacity to design and implement strategies that support low‐emission, climate‐resilient development. Robust and responsive state institutions, capable public and private sector management, and skilled human resources each play a critical role in supporting transformation that is generated from within and sustained over time.

The UN system has the broad operational reach and vast network of regional, national and sub‐national offices to deliver capacity development services at such scope and scale. As a trusted multilateral partner, it uses its global presence and experience to help nations strengthen their capacities so that they can perform better and contribute to the achievement of national development goals.
