ACT works with the governments of our partner countries to help integrate climate change into their policies, plans and budgets. It also aims to attract further climate change investment from the public and private sector. Some of these activities include:
Transform systems of planning and delivery
These activities include: linking planning and budgetary frameworks to improve resource allocation; developing decision making support tools; and creating strong systems for transparency, accountability and feedback. The goals of these activities are to help avoid policy conflicts and to create greater efficiency compared with managing climate change through separate, independent efforts.
Build the climate change knowledge of decision makers
The programme aims to build the capacity of political leaders, governments, practitioners and investors by capturing and sharing lessons on how to plan for climate change. This will ensure political engagement and strong leadership for establishing favourable policies and programmes (including those for private sector investment) and preparing communities to adapt to climate change.
Support the design and delivery of climate resilience and low carbon measures
The programme will provide technical support to help governments and communities develop climate-smart methods tailored to their regions. It will test new approaches in practice and generate evidence for the design of specific policy instruments and innovative approaches. These activities will address delivery challenges, with a focus on accountability and learning.
Promote investments for climate compatible development
The programme will attract new investments from public (domestic and international) and private sectors for financing further climate-related projects. It will promote transparent and accountable financing, and develop proposals for domestic and international climate funds. The programme will work hard to develop its portfolio of support, in consultation with governments and other stakeholders.
