June is turning out to be a very busy month for LEDS GP – at the end of the month, we’ll be closing our call for applications to our 2016 Fellowship Program, so make sure to get your application to us in good time. We’ll also be launching our Africa LEDS Partnership and Asia LEDS Partnership annual events in Kigali and Viet Nam respectively, on 27th June. We look forward to seeing some of you there – and for those of you who can’t make it, keep an eye on our website for updates and blogs.
Meanwhile, our Regional Platform for Latin America and the Caribbean (LEDS LAC) is inviting applications for training sessions during their V Regional LEDS LAC Workshop from 26th – 28th September – submit your proposal here!
We’ll also be collaborating with the UNDP’s Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme on their 6th Annual Global Meeting in Berlin from 14th to 16th September, to explore the relationship between Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) and the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) – more from us on this soon!
Following a successful webinar on improving gender mainstreaming in the energy sector from our Asia LEDS Partnership and Energy Working Group, we’d like to share this webinar recording and accompanying blog.

REAL request of the month:
Following a request to our Remote Expert Assistance on LEDS (REAL) service, our Subnational Integration Working Group and LEDS LAC platform have worked with CIOESTE (a consortium of 8 municipalities in western metropolitan São Paulo, Brazil) to develop an urban energy inventory and analysis. On June 9-10, a team of representatives from across different levels of municipality, state and national governance, academia and NGOs, reviewed the inventory draft and low emission urban development targets, options and strategies. They used this initiative as a learning opportunity to enhance their own work in low emission policy decisions and infrastructure investments, and discussed ways to collaborate more fully on LEDS actions between city, state and national governments. A report on this activity will be finalized in June by CIOESTE with the LEDS GP.
