Resilient: Zero carbon, risk-informed, sustainable

UNDP’s work in climate change, disaster risk reduction and energy (2015-2017)

This report is comprised of 15 country case studies providing examples of climate action, disaster risk reduction and recovery, and sustainable energy. Each case emphasizes the integrated approach to these work streams and similarly, the linkages and benefits that each extends to the others. 

This report, chronicling efforts since 2015, looks specifically at the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Paris Agreement, and the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030. It reflects on the work supported by UNDP at country and regional levels, and emphasizes how these actions support progress. The report highlights how action areas are interconnected and how progress on one is progress on another, showcasing initiatives such as the use of reforestation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and simultaneously provide protection against land degradation and sea-level rise; solar projects that enhance energy access while empowering women and students; disaster recovery processes that strengthen infrastructure and institutions against future threats; and how Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are the crux of each country’s commitments to the Paris Agreement.
