INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT FOR DOMESTIC ACTION International Support for Domestic Climate Policies in Developing Countries, Climate Policy 9.5 Editor: Karsten Neuhoff Six case studies explore the domestic drivers and barriers for policies with climate (co-)benefits in developing countries and show that international support can help to overcome these constraints by providing additional resources for incremental policy costs, technical assistance, and technology cooperation to build local capacity.

Brewer Secretariat: Climate Strategies c/o University of Cambridge 13-14 Trumpington Street Cambridge, CB2 1QA, UK +44 (0) 1223 748812 www.climatestrategies.org Climate Strategies aims to assist governments in solving the collective action problem of climate change. It connects leading applied research on international climate change issues to the policy process and to public debate, raising the quality and coherence of advice provided on policy formation. We convene international groups of experts to provide rigorous, fact-based and independent assessment on international climate change policy. To effectively communicate insights into climate change policy, Climate Strategies works with decision-makers in government and business, particularly, but not restricted to, the countries of the European Union and EU institutions.
