Advancing Bioelectricity in Latin America and the Caribbean: Proceedings and Outcomes of the First Implementation Year of a Community of Practice of Leading Countries in the Region
The Bioelectricity Community of Practice, run by LEDS LAC and the Energy Working Group of LEDS GP, brings together LAC government leaders in charge of designing and implementing bioelectricity policies and programs. It gives them the opportunity to share tools for gathering and processing bioelectricity data to support decision-making. This report describes the activities of the Community of Practice from its inception in July 2016, and identifies the primary areas for tapping into biomass for electricity generation.

The Relationship between LEDS and REDD+: Case studies from Peru and Guatemala
This paper evaluates the relationships between Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development Strategies (LEDS) and strategies to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries (REDD+). Based on a preliminary assessment of two case study countries in Latin America – Peru and Guatemala – it also provides some guidance and opportunities to better integrate LEDS and REDD+.
