What is an RSA?

Topic Progress:
The Rapid Situational Assessment (RSA) is a tool that provides background information on initial areas of support the country seeks from the Partnership.

It provides an analysis of the institutional arrangements, existing policies and regulations relevant for climate action, as well as finance structures and local capacities. The aim is to develop a shared understanding of the existing conditions in country that enable or hinder climate action.

These insights to how the country engagement process can add value to the existing context in country for NDC implementation will help to inform the development and contents of a Partnership Plan in Stage 3.

Once the draft RSA has been shared with the FPs, the facilitator and the Scoping Lead compile and address comments, in order to submit a final RSA that can be shared publicly.

"With NDC, we’re looking at two critical issues: coordination and how data can inform bankable projects for implementation."
