The “Low Carbon Resilient Development” program in Colombia began its work in 2014
supported by USAID and USFS. The program is aimed at supporting the national and local
governments in Colombia to improve their resilience to climate change impacts and lower
their future greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while integrating the three levels (national,
subnational and local).
The program will provide support to national level governmental entities to develop and
implement their Sectorial Mitigation Action Plans (SMAPs) and advance in incorporating
climate change resilience criteria and considerations in their planning processes. It also
aims to help local authorities and organizations in selected cities to implement actions to
improve their resilience to climate change impacts and pursue low-carbon development
options demonstrating the effects of different implementation options.
2. Objective

Development Strategy (CLCDS) aligned with the implementation of CONPES 3819 of
2014 to consolidate the system of cities in Colombia for what concerns climate change
adaptation and mitigation actions. As well as supporting other climate change activities
including National Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and monitoring and reporting
schemes of climate change measures that are related with regional development.
