UK PACT is a demand-led programme and the sectors in which it works vary according to the specific needs, priorities and opportunities in each country of operation. Priority sectors of greatest emissions reduction potential and where UK PACT can provide the most relevant capacity-building support have been identified through an exercise of stakeholder consultations and demand scoping with key beneficiaries in each partner country under the Country Programmes and with key stakeholder groups to inform the focus of the Green Recovery Challenge Fund windows. These cover a wide range of sectors critical for achieving carbon emissions reductions, including green finance, energy, mobility, forests and land use, sustainable livelihoods, and climate policy.
