Effective planning can both help make development resilient to the impacts~of climate change and help policymakers identify opportunities to harness~development benefits from lowering emissions. In developing countries, such~planning requires the support of international finance, technology transfer~and capacity building. Identifying national priorities for climate compatible~development that combines adaptation and low emissions development~objectives, while meeting the requirements of international support~frameworks, involves balancing upward and downward accountability.~This briefing examines lessons learnt from different country-scale action~planning under such dual accountability frameworks.
