The following resources can be used to support different stages of low emissions development planning. Click here to add a capacity building or training resource to the inventory.

Climate Change Capacity Development (C3D+) Climate Change Capacity Development (C3D+)
The Capacity Development for Adaptation to Climate Change & GHG Mitigation in Non-Annex I Countries, or C3D+ Initiative, is a new initiative building upon past experience, launched in 2009. The C3D+ is a new step forward, directly involving seven centers of excellence and covering almost 30 developing countries that will benefit from a training programme on climate change related issues.
Climate Technology Initiative Training Courses Climate Technology Initiative Training Courses
Training courses are organised in collaboration with relevant international organisations, with a focus on the special requirements and circumstances of the target countries/regions.
FAO-Capacity Development on Climate Change FAO-Capacity Development on Climate Change
This portal provides a one-stop window for Member States, partners, UN staff and other development actors to access FAO climate change learning resources to facilitate experience-sharing.
IAEA Planning and Economic Studies Section (PESS) Capacity Building IAEA Planning and Economic Studies Section (PESS) Capacity Building
PESS offers assistance to Member States, particularly from developing regions, to improve their energy system analysis & planning capabilities.
One UN Training Service Platform for Climate Change (UN CC:LEARN) One UN Training Service Platform for Climate Change (UN CC:LEARN)
The One UN Training Service Platform for Climate Change (UN CC:Learn) is a partnership of 26 UN agencies which supports Member States, UN agencies and other development partners in designing and implementing results-oriented and sustainable learning to address climate change.
REDD+ Training Materials


REDD+ Training Materials
The training materials include: a Participant Resource Manual which provides a comprehensive overview of REDD+, an Instructor's Manual with interactive lesson plans for delivering the course material, and a set of powerpoint presentations that correspond to each lesson.
US EPA GHG Inventory Capacity Building US EPA GHG Inventory Capacity Building
U.S. EPA's capacity building activities focus on specific measurable and realistic outcomes. The keys to this approach are the two complementary sets of tools to assist Non-Annex I (NAI) Parties with GHG inventories.
World Bank Renewable Energy Toolkit World Bank Renewable Energy Toolkit
The Word Bank's REToolKit is designed "to assist Bank staff and country counterparts to improve the design and implementation of renewable energy (RE) projects, incorporates best practices and lessons learned from RE projects supported by the WBG and others, and is operationally oriented to address practical implementation needs at each stage in the project cycle.
