Achieving an adequate balance between the need for economic growth, less dependence on fossil fuels, and increased resilience to climate change and climate related disasters is a significant challenge for any country, but particularly for those countries that are most vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change and that are least able to plan for and confront it.

The Guidance Note “Integrating Climate Change Considerations in the Country Analysis and the UNDAF” is part of efforts to ensure an effective response by the United Nations (UN) system to assist Member States to prepare and implement coherent and balanced development policies to effectively confront climate change.

This guidance note is part of three inter-related UNDG tools including the previous Guidance Note on mainstreaming Disaster Risk Reduction and the Guidance Note on Mainstreaming Environmental Sustainability in Country Analysis and the UNDAF.
