This policy guidance outlines a number of steps to be considered when building capacity for greening national development planning, national budgetary processes and key economic sector strategies. It identifies the key actors to be engaged in the decision making processes, outlines possible capacity needs and suggests how these can be addressed. This policy guidance is intended to support developing countries in their efforts to move to a greener development path. It is also intended to assist development co-operation and environment agencies in their efforts to support that process.

Capacity for development support providers

Successful capacity for greening development depends to a large extent on sustained support from development support providers. This chapter examines what capacities these providers themselves need at the levels of the enabling environment, the organisation and the individual in order to effectively assist countries in building their own environmental capacities. It addresses inter-agency co-operation and provides examples of best practice. It examines how development support providers can themselves assess their existing capacity to deliver assistance and how they can strengthen their capacities for effective future support delivery. A self-assessment tool is included to help development support providers evaluate their capacity requirements.
