This webinar will focus on the benefits and basic principles underlying LT-LEDS processes. The key learning objectives for participants are:

  • Increased confidence and understanding on the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of developing a LTS for their national context,
  • Clearer understanding of the international technical support available,
  • Increased motivation to progress to the next stage of developing a LT-LEDS (e.g. ‘readiness assessment’, follow up country specific engagement on LT-LEDS development, joining supportive communities of practice).

This webinar will have a specific focus on governance aspects related to LT-LEDS and will include interactive discussion with participants. Please review the discussion questions below and be prepared to share experiences and lessons from your country. The webinar is organized by the Asia LEDS Partnership, LEDS Global Partnership and Climate Works Australia (CWA).
