Linking climate change policies to human development analysis and advocacy

This guidance note has been prepared in response to the growing demand for guidelines to support the work of human development report teams and partners in integrating human development analysis and advocacy into more equitable, sustainable and climateresilient development planning and policy debates. The note explores each stage of report preparation, while highlighting key conceptual, data, analytical, policy and advocacy issues for teams to adapt according to regional and national contexts. It provides practical suggestions on ways that reports can complement existing climate change responses and broader development initiatives supported by UNDP and its partners, and offers country examples and references to cutting-edge research and literature.
