==About the Partnership==
The Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS) Global Partnership was founded to advance climate-resilient low emission development through coordination, information exchange, and cooperation among programs and countries working to advance low emissions growth. Launched in early 2011, the partnership currently brings together [[LEDSGP/about/members|118 governmental and international institutions]]. The partnership is [[LEDSGP/join|open to any interested parties]] that performs relevant work. We operate via a new and innovative distributed leadership model. [[LEDSGP/about/how|Learn more]].

The LEDS Global Partnership’s objectives are to:
  
* Strengthen support for low-emission climate-resilient development in all [[LEDSGP/about/regional-platforms|regions]].
+
*'''Strengthen quality, coordinated support, and leadership''' of climate-resilient low emission development strategies by countries in all [[LEDSGP/about/regional-platforms|regions]]
* Mobilize [[LEDSGP/tools|capacity]] and advance peer-to-peer learning and collaboration on low-emission climate-resilient development across countries, international institutions and practitioners.
+
*'''Foster effective implementation''' of LEDS
* Improve and support coordination of low-emission climate-resilient development [[LEDSGP/activities|LEDS activities]] at the country, regional and global level.
+
*'''Spur development of new LEDS''' by additional national and sub-national governments

===How We Work===
 +
The LEDS Global Partnership operates through an innovative distributed leadership model, with regional institutions managing African, Asian and Latin American regional platforms and officials from countries and international organizations providing technical support on analysis and tools, planning, finance, and sectors (e.g., agriculture, energy, transport, and waste).  A steering committee provides guidance and sets strategic direction for LEDS GP, and a global secretariat coordinates LEDS GP implementation, knowledge management, and outreach.
 +
 
 +
[[File:LEDS-How.png|650px]]
 +
 
 +
The partnership's ''regional platforms'' and ''work streams'' and ''working groups'' provide focused ways to more deeply investigate and improve understanding of low emission development at different geographic, topical and sectoral levels.

About the Partnership

Find out more on our new website www.ledsgp.org.

The Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Global Partnership was founded to advance climate resilient low emission development through coordination, information exchange, and cooperation among programs and countries working to advance low emissions growth. Launched in early 2011, the partnership currently brings together more than 140 governmental and international institutions. The partnership is open to all interested parties that perform relevant work. We operate via a new and innovative distributed leadership model. Learn more.


Program Objectives

The LEDS Global Partnership’s objectives are to:

  • Strengthen quality, coordinated support, and leadership of climate-resilient low emission development strategies by countries in all regions
  • Foster effective implementation of LEDS
  • Spur development of new LEDS by additional national and sub-national governments


How We Work

The LEDS Global Partnership operates through an innovative distributed leadership model, with regional institutions managing African, Asian and Latin American regional platforms and officials from countries and international organizations providing technical support on analysis and tools, planning, finance, and sectors (e.g., agriculture, energy, transport, and waste). A steering committee provides guidance and sets strategic direction for LEDS GP, and a global secretariat coordinates LEDS GP implementation, knowledge management, and outreach.

The partnership's regional platforms and work streams and working groups provide focused ways to more deeply investigate and improve understanding of low emission development at different geographic, topical and sectoral levels.

Regional Platforms

Regional platforms define country priorities and conduct regional peer-learning forums, and they collaborate on common regional technical resources and services. The regional platforms lead regional peer learning, training, and collaboration; engage technical working groups (listed below under work streams), the LEDS GP Secretariat, and others to meet country and regional needs; and cultivate champions and broad support for LEDS.

Africa LEDS Partnership: Works towards climate resilient and low carbon development in Africa by bringing together policy, practice and research communities from across Africa to empower African partnerships between these communities and to embed climate resilient and low carbon development into Africa’s development agenda, activities and future Asia LEDS Partnership: Brings together more than 150 representatives from 17 governments in South, Southeast, East, and Central Asia, regional and international development organizations, non-governmental organizations, businesses, and others active in LEDS in Asia to advance the development of national-level and country-led strategic plans to promote economic growth while reducing greenhouse (GHG) emissions—without causing trade-offs to other environmental pressures—in the Asia region Latin America and Caribbean Regional Platform: Promotes low emission development in Latin America through learning and information exchange, sharing best practices, and providing enhanced opportunities for coordination and collaboration on the development and implementation of LEDS.


Work Streams and Working Groups

Work streams focus on LEDS processes, analysis and tools, finance, and sectors. They provide advisory services, improved technical resources, and training to countries in response to the regional priorities. The work streams also assist with activities implemented through the regional platforms and are supplemented with global activities where appropriate.

Working groups develop and deliver technical resources, training, expert assistance, and match-making. And, they engage with current topical platforms and convene virtual forums.

Steering Committee

Secretariat

Our Steering Committee provides guidance, oversight, and fundraising support. Members of the Steering Committee are gathered from among our member organizations:

The LEDS GP Secretariat coordinates activities, mobilizes resources, maintains the LEDS activities inventory, and develops partnerships. It also links regional platforms and technical working groups, and it convenes global forums.



Regional Platforms

LEDS GP regional platforms lead regional peer learning, training, and collaboration; engage technical working groups, the LEDS GP Secretariat, and others to meet country and regional needs; and cultivate champions and broad support for LEDS.

Africa LEDS Partnership

The Africa LEDS Partnership works towards climate resilient and low carbon development in Africa by bringing together policy, practice and research communities from across Africa to empower African partnerships between these communities and to embed climate resilient and low carbon development into Africa’s development agenda, activities and future.

Asia LEDS Partnership

The Asia LEDS Partnership serves as a platform to promote and enable low emission, climate resilient development across South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, Central Asia, and the Pacific (including Australia and New Zealand). The partnership supports peer-to-peer learning, knowledge sharing, and improved coordination and cooperation among partners, including governments, development organizations, non-governmental organizations, businesses, academic institutions, and others working to achieve transformative, sustainable economic growth in Asia.

Latin America and Caribbean Regional Platform

The Latin America and Caribbean LEDS Regional Platform promotes low emission development in Latin America through learning and information exchange, sharing best practices, and providing enhanced opportunities for coordination and collaboration on the development and implementation of LEDS.



Working Groups

The working groups of the LEDS Global Partnership develop and deliver technical resources, training, expert assistance, and match-making. And, they engage with current topical networks and convene virtual forums.
