Integrating climate change into national sustainable development strategies and plans in Latin America and the Caribbean

An evaluation of the project, "Integrating Climate Change into National Sustainable Development Strategies and Plans in Latin America and the Caribbean" implemented in Grenada, Bolivia and Guatemala.

Conclusions inclded that efforts should be undertaken in future projects to more closely link adaptation project efforts to mitigation ones, allowing the projects to tap into the institutional support already developed for mitigation. For example, all three countries in this project have Designated National Authorities under the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol , and these organizations have already developed sustainability criteria for clean technology projects undertaken within the country–but this project did not incorporate such previous mitigation efforts into the project design.
