WHAT ARE LEDS

Addressing the challenges posed by climate change requires the integration of mitigation and adaptation goals into policies and development strategies. At the same time, the achievement of economic and social aspirations of our countries demands taking into account these challenges.

For this reason in LEDS LAC we promote the formulation and implementation of national, sub-national and sectoral strategies, that simultaneously respond to the triple objective of promoting development, reducing emissions and increasing resilience.

These Resilient and Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) allow countries to move towards a sustainable development and meet their climate commitments.

Beyond the implementation of isolated actions of mitigation and adaptation, we are interested in the transformation of the development pattern in the region. This is why we support leaders who are driving change from governments, civil society, private sector and the international community.
