The World Bank Group’s Country Climate and Development Reports (CCDRs) are a core diagnostic that integrates climate change and development. They help countries prioritize the most impactful actions that can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and boost adaptation and resilience, while delivering on broader development goals. CCDRs build on data and rigorous research and identify main pathways to reduce GHG emissions and climate vulnerabilities, including the costs and challenges as well as benefits and opportunities from doing so. The reports suggest concrete, priority actions to support the low-carbon, resilient transition.

CCDRs help inform policy and institutional reforms, as well as public and private investments, that support high-impact climate action. As public, downloadable documents, CCDRs aim to inform governments, citizens, the private sector and development partners and enable engagements with the development and climate agenda. CCDRs feed into other core Bank Group diagnostics, country engagements and operations, and help attract funding and direct financing for high-impact climate action.

Every year, key insights are summarized in an annual report. CCDRs are first being produced for 25 countries and will be rolled out to at all WBG countries over the next four years. At COP28, the report Climate, Development, and Nature Crisis combined results from the CCDRs covering 42 economies and aggregating their findings on adaptation and resilience, economic growth in low-emission scenarios, the role of the private sector, and the opportunities from addressing forest losses and working with nature. The previous report, based on 20 CCDRs and entitled Climate and Development: an Agenda for Action, was published at COP27.
