LECB Programme Global Meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam

Vietnam UNDP-VNM-10-280 small

The LECB Programme Global Meeting serves as an annual forum for LECB practitioners, policy makers, donors and global experts to discuss experiences, share best practices & strengthen capacities in the field of low-carbon development. The focus of this year's meeting is attracting Climate Finance for Low Emission Development and included discussions on the preparation of Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) and how LEDS can fit into a broader development context, as well as skills-based training on climate finance. Agenda

Day 1 focused on Low Emission Development Strategies – emphasizing national experiences and best practices. Through a mix of presentations, a moderated panel discussion and working groups, participants engaged on topics such as how to initiate and "MRV" a LEDS and the importance of linking a LEDS to broader policy frameworks, and walked away with practical tools for getting started & monitoring one's progress. Day 1 morning presentations | Day 1 afternoon presentations

On Day 2, the focus moved to climate finance. The morning's session will enable participants to explore topics that specifically relate to their capacity development needs and interests by attending up to two finance clinics. The afternoon focused on engaging investors, both public and private, before concluding with a panel discussion on the range of support available to developing countries.

Day 3 brought the thematic streams of LEDS and finance together to move from planning to practice. The focus was on how to create an enabling environment to attract & catalyse investment in low-emission development, through the use of policy and public finance tools. Participants then applied the skills they have learned throughout the workshop to develop a NAMA financing plan. The meeting concluded with a discussion on transformational change and what this means in practice as countries engage in the important work of developing low carbon futures.
