The UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme promotes essential cooperation between relevant institutions, engaging the public sector and industry in a concerted effort to address climate change consistent with national development priorities around the world. Programme-supported projects aim to strengthen technical and institutional capacity at the national level. This work includes the identification and formulation of NAMAs, Low emission development strategies (LEDS), mitigation actions in selected industries with the participation of the private sector, the strengthening of GHG inventory management systems and the design of Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) systems.
The global programme is supported through generous contributions by the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), and the Australian Government, while implemented by UNDP. The LECB Programme is active in twenty five countries around the globe, including: Argentina, Bhutan, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, DRC, Ecuador, Egypt, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Morocco, Peru, Philippines, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, Vietnam and Zambia
