The IPCC documents an increasing gap between current global greenhouse gas emissions and trajectories compatible with the 1.5°C goal in the Paris Agreement. The agreement proposes Long-Term Low Emission Development Strategies (LT-LEDS) as a key instrument to align national climate ambitions with the global climate goal, and the achievement of climate with national development goals.  Only a few African countries have submitted LT-LEDS to-date. Going forward, LT-LEDS in African countries must align climate and development objectives by considering national circumstances and challenges, including low energy access, industrialization needs and high vulnerability to economic- and climate shocks and climate resilience. In the context of just transition, LT-V and LT-LEDS development requires a strong buy-in from national stakeholders, a policy-relevant degree of details on long-term priorities, and a nationally led and country owned process of elaboration. Building on lessons learnt in the ongoing project in Nigeria and Senegal, this event will discuss challenges with building LTV and LT-LEDS in an African context, and how to ensure that LTV and LT-LEDS can effectively support the achievement of climate and multi-scale development objectives. Furthermore, the event will also discuss how LTV and LT-LEDS can be useful in structuring international financial cooperation in support of its implementation.
