5.3.1 Supporting learning and capability-building Low-carbon development pathways should be based on locally nested capabilities for devising appropriate and sustainable solutions and systems. The capabilities should not be limited strictly to the development and shaping of technologies, but should be relevant also to the end users of sustain- able products and services. The specific nature and type of the required capabilities will depend on the specific settings, existing transport systems, energy infrastructures, recycling practices, etc. They will also depend on the availability of local resources, human as well as natural. In an ideal world, con- text-specific capability building for low-carbon in- Box 13.

novation would be the overriding objective of the international community. The combination of context sensitivity and the learning perspective implies the critical need for policy learning and dynamic goal setting. It also implies a need for developing local capacity for an- ticipating risks, learning about barriers, formulat-ing policies to address these barriers, and revising policies in the light of experience.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
