Study on local actions in Asia contributing to climate change mitigation and alternative financial mechanism

To increase communities involvement in mitigating climate change, support from local governments is very crucial not only as facilitator but also as finance providers. Local Government in developing countries can create umbrella program for communities througout the country to implement small scale mitigation project activities, such as Programmatic CDM. Local government in developed countries may mobilize resources from private companies or other public fundings in their countries to support the implementation of community-based-mitigation projects in developing countries.
