The Climate Helpdesk provides no-cost technical assistance to developing countries on NDC implementation and Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) analysis, including subnational integration and linkages with climate resilience, finance, energy, transportation, and waste questions. The Climate Helpdesk also offers support with preparation of biennial update reports (BURs), establishing sustainable and robust Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) systems, and preparation for the Enhanced Transparency Framework and climate reporting requirements under the UNFCCC.

Climate Helpdesk impacts
LEDS GP provided expert review of Kenya’s Climate Change Framework Policy. Experts from six different institutions and governments provided valuable suggestions to strengthen Kenya’s Framework for Climate Change Policy, including suggestions on strengthening monitoring and evaluation indicators and benefits of the policy, among others. Comments provided by the LEDS GP experts were incorporated into the revised version of the policy which was validated by the Cabinet and presented to the Parliament for approval. This policy will provide a framework for action that promotes low carbon development in Kenya and is an important milestone in the country’s path for developing its economy while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
