Guidance note on how to design transformational mitigation projects. A checklist for project developers and managers
This Guidance Note aims to help practitioners better understand the concept of transformational change (TC). By providing a checklist of the characteristics of transformational change that should be considered in the design of transformational mitigation projects, the Guidance Note can support the achievement of the following objectives: 1) enhance the impact and relevance of projects implementing NDCs; 2) meet the requirements and demands of climate funds, donors and partners; 3) address cross sectoral project goals; and 4) assist in designing mitigation policies and actions (including NAMAs) which initiate and propel long-term transformational processes.
The Guidance Note helps to answer the following questions:
What are the characteristics of TC, and what constitutes transformational policies and actions?
How can my project contribute to transformational policies and actions, and what do I need to consider when designing transformational mitigation projects?
How can I manage the processes that trigger the desired transformation?
