This working paper considers some of the various drivers behind countries’ climate compatible development (CCD) strategies and their incentives for engaging on this agenda. It also looks some of the challenges and disincentives to promoting CCD reforms and considers some of the options for overcoming these.
The Working Paper sets out CDKN’s initial thinking on the drivers and challenges affecting CCD policy processes. It presents a range of relevant examples drawn from the literature and CDKN’s experience to date. It is not intended to be comprehensive, but a contribution to the debate. Climate compatible development is a “development first” approach that minimizes the harm caused by climate impacts, while maximizing the many human development opportunities presented by a low emissions, more resilient, future.
