Supporting Low Emissions Development Strategies in the Energy Sector


Worldwatch currently holds the secretariat of the Low Emissions Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS-GP) Energy Working Group, a demand-driven network of more than 50 national governments, multilateral institutions, private practitioners, and NGOs operating in the energy sector. By facilitating information exchange, offering advisory services, and providing enhanced opportunities for collaboration, the group supports innovative sustainable energy solutions and assists countries in crafting successful climate-resilient development strategies. The Energy Working Group is currently developing an interactive online mapping tool to highlight the positive impacts of successful renewable energy and energy efficiency projects and policies on human development. We are also in the process of working with group members to prepare energy sector training events for upcoming regional LEDS events in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. 

Worldwatch's work with the Energy Working Group supports the activities of the LEDS Global Partnership. Membership is open to all interested parties. If you would like to get involved, refer a colleague, or learn more about our activities email Evan Musolino.
