The Low Emission Development Global Partnership (LEDS GP) creates opportunities for professionals to exchange experience on practical aspects of low emission development. Members of our network say they value these platforms for skills exchange and learning – whether it is in person, or increasingly through ‘virtual’ meetings and conversations.

Climate change mitigation
Countries contributions to the historic Paris climate change agreement (2015) were centred on their plans for cutting or avoiding the greenhouse gas emissions that are driving human-made global warming - otherwise known as climate change mitigation. Mitigation actions can deliver not only emissions reductions, but also wider co-benefits in relation to climate change adaptation, development, employment, energy security and public health. These co-benefits can contribute to achieving a number of the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular those on affordable and clean energy (SDG 7), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and responsible consumption and production (SDG 12). Explicitly setting out the co-benefits of a low-emission development approach can increase stakeholder buy-in and support the prioritisation of mitigation activities.
