This technical document presents evidence to demonstrate that each tier of government (national, regional, local) has a unique and potentially complementary role to play in delivering low emission and climate resilient development. This means that effectively co-ordinated multilevel action can help nations implement their Nationally Determined Contributions. It provides key arguments to national government for integrating sub-national government in climate change policy, action and financing, and gives examples of where this has been achieved.
