They also launched the first session of a four-part Community of Practice series with the Energy Working Group on ‘Bioelectricity resource potentials in member countries’.

We’re also in the process of finalizing the fellows for our 2016 Fellowship Program, which supports the placement of practitioners within leading institutions to learn practical lessons that will be applied to low emission development strategies or NDCs in their home country.

REAL request of the month:
Following a request to our Remote Expert Assistance on LEDS (REAL) service, an expert from LEDS GP spent a week with high-level representatives of the Government of Macedonia and international donor institutions to discuss how a planned LEDS program can help meet national economic development and sustainability goals. LEDS GP offers technical assistance to government leaders to develop comprehensive LEDS action planning and related activities, to accelerate national economic development that result in reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Macedonia’s Deputy Prime Minister and the Cabinet of the Deputy Prime Minister in charge of economic affairs are actively supporting Macedonia’s LEDS process.
