Capacity building

The process of developing the technical skills, the knowledge, the tools, the scientific expertise, the political know-how, the public support and institutional capability in developing countries and economies in transition (EITs) to enable them to effectively address the causes and impacts of climate change. Capacity-building is about improving the abilities of individuals, organizations and institutions in those countries to identify, plan and implement approaches to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
