LEDS GP is being rebranded as the Global Climate Action Partnership (GCAP)

After a decade of advancing climate planning and implementation processes powered by collaboration and peer learning across brilliant members across the world, the LEDS GP is being rebranded as the Global Climate Action Partnership (GCAP). As part of this rebranding effort, we are refining our strategic approach to give greater emphasis to supporting country-driven implementation actions to achieve resilient, just, and inclusive low emission and net zero economies. GCAP will also strengthen the role that developing countries play in driving partnership priorities and programs, including the establishment of a developing country council of climate leaders. Stay tuned for more updates and branding changes.

Our Mission and Vision

The LEDS Global Partnership is an incubator for knowledge and solutions that can be scaled up, leading the way to climate-resilient low-emission development. 

It is a platform of climate leaders, that is owned by its members – providing an enabling environment for collaborative and ambitious climate action, learning and peer to peer exchange.
