Africa LEDS Planning, Modelling, and Implementation Project
United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
The project aims to contribute to a prosperous, climate-resilient Africa for the welfare of current and future generations. It aims to promote low-carbon, climate-resilient development to alleviate poverty, create jobs and improve environmental management on the continent.
To achieve this, the EU-UNEP project is designed to boost local knowledge and expertise among African nations in order to bolster plans for low emission, climate-resilient, and resource efficient socio-economic development.
Building on the landmark Paris Agreement, the project will support countries as they seek to implement their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions.
The EU-UNEP project involves two components. The first will focus on strategic level interventions aimed at building the capacity of countries for LEDS planning and policy integration at sectorial and economy wide scales. The second will focus on tactical and technical capacity building.
The project will also involve two phases. The first will be a pilot, targeting eight countries (Cameroon, DRC, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Zambia, Ghana, Morocco, and Kenya). The second one will see the project replicated and scaled up across other countries of the continent.
