COP19: Jennifer Baumwoll on supporting low emission climate development

COP19 (15/11/2013) – Jennifer Baumwoll, Research Analyst, UN’s Development Programme, talks about her work in supporting countries to design and implement low emission climate resilient development strategies.

She says the UNDP recognises the importance of strengthening capacities within countries. This requires connecting them with the relevant knowledge and technology.

The UNDP’s work includes training decision-makers, integrating climate change in education curricula and integrating gender considerations in policies as well.

She says strengthening public awareness is important in order to strengthen low emission climate development.
