Technical assistance and other services
Upon request, the Subnational Integration Working Group provides short term technical assistance for developing country low emission development strategy teams— including government agencies, technical institutions, and NGOs that are working directly with country governments to plan and implement their LEDS. Teams may submit multiple, successive requests, including follow-on inquiries. This targeted LEDS support to governments upon request is provided via the Remote Expert Assistance on LEDS (REAL) service. More information is available on the REAL webpage. LEDS LAC, together with our Subnational Integration of LEDS Working Group provided technical assistance to CIOESTE (a consortium of eight municipalities in western metropolitan São Paulo, Brazil) to develop an urban energy inventory and analysis. CIOESTE is utilizing this learning opportunity to enhance its work towards low emission policy decisions and infrastructure investments. One of the principal objectives of this work is to collaborate more fully on LEDS actions between city, state, and national governments.
This publication presents an overview of LEDS trends in the LAC region, with the aim of disseminating information and accelerating LEDS and NDCs. [more...]
