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.

Decarbonising the energy sector – that is, providing energy services via renewable resources – is an unavoidable step on the global pathway to a secure, net-zero emissions world, because energy currently contributes some 40% to the global footprint of greenhouse gas emissions (IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report, volume III Mitigation of climate change). Energy access also provides the entry point for a range of important policies that are ‘climate compatible’ in the fullest sense of delivering triple wins for development, climate adaptation and mitigation.
A range of CDKN-commissioned research and programmatic insights show how developing countries are successfully piloting low-emission, climate-resilient planning in the energy sector. Explore these below.
