Enhancing Capacity for Low Emission Development Strategies (EC-LEDS)

What is Enhancing Capacity for Low Emission Development Strategies (EC-LEDS)?

The USAID LEAD program supports and complements the US Government’s Enhancing Capacity for Low Emission Development Strategies (EC-LEDS) initiative. EC-LEDS supports developing countries’ efforts to pursue long-term, transformative development and accelerate sustainable, climate-resilient economic growth while slowing the growth of greenhouse gas emissions. The program is an integral part of U.S. Government efforts to provide fast start climate financing and will build capacities in partner countries, provide targeted technical assistance, and build a shared global knowledge base on low emission development. EC-LEDS supports and enhances country-led development programs, plans, and policies, and complements efforts of other international donors and organizations to support low emission development strategies (LEDS).

EC-LEDS country partners in Asia include Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
