UNFCCC Launches Capacity-building Portal

UNFCCC10 June 2014: The UNFCCC Secretariat has launched a Capacity-building Portal, a tool developed to help monitor and review capacity built to better mitigate and adapt to climate change. Users are able to customize search criteria, visualize data through interactive maps, bubbles and multicolored pie charts, line up results in tables and print them.

More specifically, the portal allows for: reviewing the types of capacity-building support provided at the global, regional and country level; tracking specific project activities and programmes; identifying and building on best practices; and identifying potential gaps in capacity-building delivery. Users can also access information on stakeholders involved, funding sources and amounts allocated. Finally, the portal aims to help improve coordination of capacity-building support and determine possible cooperation partners. [UNFCCC Press Release] [Capacity-building Portal]
