The Asia Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Partnership is a voluntary regional network that promotes and enables low-emission, climate-resilient development across the Asia and Pacific region through peer-to-peer learning, knowledge sharing, and improved coordination and cooperation among governmental and non-governmental partners. ALP’s goal is to advance the development of country-led and country-specific strategic plans to promote economic growth while reducing GHG emissions – without causing trade-offs to other environmental pressures in the Asia region. Supporting the development and implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) is a key objective of the Partnership.
The ALP is one of the four regional platforms of the Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP). LEDS GP was launched in 2011, with more than 300 institutions across government agencies, technical institutes, international agencies, and NGOs to drive low-emission development.
Project Duration: January 2016 – December 2020
