Africa LEDS Partnership CoPs
Grid Renewable Energy Community of Practice
The AFOLU Working Group serves as a platform for engaging decision makers, practitioners and researchers, for building a LEDS GP AFOLU community of practice that links agriculture and forestry expert networks.
The Working Group’s goal is to promote and facilitate information, knowledge sharing, and adoption of tools and solutions for climate resilient, low emission development across the agriculture, forestry and other land use sectors.
We build on relationships with diverse stakeholders in the AFOLU sector from regional, national, and subnational decision-makers, to low emission development practitioners, the private sector, and researchers.
How We Work
Our services include building programs and expertise through a wide range of global and regional workshops, technical assistance, developing case studies, guidance documents, peer learning, and hosting webinars.
The Working Group has launched a community of practices (CoP) in X regions. The objective of the CoPs are to provide a platform – virtual and in-person – for sector stakeholders within a region to discuss experiences and seek guidance on xyz topics; learn from practitioners in peer countries with experience planning and implementing sustainable actions; and share relevant reports and resources. The CoPs are intended to be an informal space to link expert assistance and technical know-how with on-the-ground challenges and priorities.
