Step-by-step guidance to a long-term framework for continuous sustainable development cooperation


The low emission development strategy tool provides developers and implementers of low emission development strategies with brief step-by-step instructions on how to develop a strategy. The tool, by the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV in partnership with GIZ, navigates users to the relevant information, knowledge, instruments, and publications available.

Low emission development strategies (LEDS) are national long-term strategies for reducing emissions while promoting sustainable development. They can provide an overall framework for the development of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs).

The LEDS tool guides practitioners step-by-step through the process of developing and implementing a low emission development strategy. The process is structured into six steps. The 6-step approach is designed to lead users to more information about and accessible instruments for certain aspects of LEDS development.
