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 118 governmental and international institutions. The partnership is open to any interested parties that performs relevant work. We operate via a new and innovative distributed leadership model. Learn more.
The LEDS Global Partnership’s objectives are to:
- Strengthen support for low-emission climate-resilient development in all regions.
- Mobilize capacity and advance peer-to-peer learning and collaboration on low-emission climate-resilient development across countries, international institutions and practitioners.
- Improve and support coordination of low-emission climate-resilient development LEDS activities at the country, regional and global level.
Merger with CLEAN
- In April 2012, the Global Partnership merged with the Coordinated Low Emissions Assistance Network (CLEAN) to improve efficiency and enhance coordination of LEDS activities.
