The guidebook familiarizes the reader with the concept of transformational change in the context of the Paris Agreement, the 2030 Agenda and the UNFCCC Technology Framework. Transformational change is defined, and its operationalisation is discussed as an integral part in all steps of the TNA process. Two case studies from previous TNAs, in Mongolia and Moldova, illustrate how transformational characteristics, outcomes and impacts can be assessed and promoted. Finally, the guidance note presents strategic opportunities and recommendations for TNAs to promote transformational change.
