Policy Briefs - Inside Stories in Climate Compatible Development



The objective of this project was to transfer knowledge among developing country decision-makers through two policy briefings. These featured examples of policies/programmes that had been devised to promote development while transitioning to a low carbon and climate resilient future. The policy briefings aimed to assist donors, development banks and NGOs by providing a candid view of what works and why. The briefs were in a format that was easy to understand and, most importantly, to engage with and proactively transfer into workable interventions where action and climate compatible development interventions would be most needed.

The case studies were relevant and accessible for an international audience of decision-makers in developing countries (government, private sector and civil society) and subsidiary organisations (including funding organisations, research institutions and NGOs) seeking lessons learnt that could be transferred and replicated to other contexts and regions, and subsequently would lead to programmes or policies that were scaled-up to or beyond the national level.

LTS provided full authorship (including background research and interviews) of one briefing on geothermal energy in Kenya, and co-authorship of one briefing on climate finance governance: lessons from establishing national Implementing Entities in Jamaica and Senegal. We also provided peer review of two further briefing notes in the series.

The published policy brief on climate finance governance can be downloaded here and the brief on harnessing geothermal energy in Kenya here.
