South Center is a think-tank founded by developing countries governments. The SC's project's broad objective to strengthen the capacity of developing countries at two levels: 1. At the national level, to assist developing countries to build the institutional capacity to develop climate action programmes, and to develop action plans and programmes for climate mitigation and adaptation, including a national institutional architecture for climate action and sector-based plans and policies. 2. At the international level, to assist developing countries to engage constructively and effectively in developing the international policy framework of cooperation in addressing the global climate crisis which importantly includes establishing mechanisms for financing and technology transfer. The programme opens new dialog possibilities and is interesting for Finland’s and EU’s climate policy.
