Under the Paris Agreement and in accordance with Article 4, paragraph 19, Parties should strive to formulate and communicate long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies (LT-LEDS) and are invited according to decision 1/CP 21 to communicate these, by 2020, to the secretariat.
The 2050 Pathways Platform, LEDS Global Partnership, the NDC Partnership, the UN Development Programme (UNDP), and the World Resources Institute (WRI), in cooperation with the UNFCCC jointly organized a workshop on 10-12 July 2018 in Bangkok to help Parties kick off the discussion on formulating the LT-LEDS.
The objective of the workshop was to:
- Engage country governments now in the development of Long-term Strategies by outlining importance, advantages and urgency of the strategies
- Highlight emerging good practice, country experiences, expert views and support for developing Long-term Strategies, as well as related challenges and how to overcome them
- Explore the relationship between long-term impacts and near-term climate actions and NDC implementation
- Build a community of practitioners and support for advancing the development of Long-term Strategies
