This toolkit was developed to serve as a resource for developing country officials and their implementing partners in the assessment of relevant capacity needs, and in the determination of gaps, to implement the Paris Agreement. It includes examples of approaches that have been successfully adopted as well as links to additional resources that may be accessed via the UNFCCC capacity building portal and other online sources to inspire countries’ further work with capacity building.

The toolkit is presented on behalf of the Paris Committee on Capacity Building (PCCB), which is the convening authority for capacity-building matters under the UNFCCC. A technical paper produced by the PCCB in 2019 confirmed that all countries continue to face institutional, technical, and financial capacity barriers, and that significant differences exist among countries in terms of the scope and scale of their needs and ability to address them. The technical paper recommended the development of a toolkit that would inform developing country Parties’ assessment of capacity gaps and needs related to implementing the Paris Agreement.

This toolkit responds to that recommendation by collecting and organizing resources of use to officials engaged in the capacity assessment process and incorporates expertise of the PCCB Network and their experience in undertaking capacity assessments. It draws on past efforts to present structured approaches to capacity assessment and includes case study examples and links to tools developed by countries, development agencies and other implementing partners. It is intended as a reference for officials responsible for designing and executing capacity assessments to act on climate change.
