The Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Global Partnership was founded to enhance coordination, information exchange, and cooperation among programs and countries working to advance low emission growth. Launched in early 2011, the partnership currently brings together more than 100 government and international institutions.

WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities, in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is leading the LEDS GP Transport Working Group and sharing approaches and tools for transport/land use planning, providing transport analysis methods and tools, and providing peer-to-peer transport-specific financial training and expert assistance.

LEDS Transport Toolkit

The Toolkit for Low Emission Development in Strategies in Transport is a comprehensive forum that provides access to technical resources, peer expert assistance, and training to support government planners, decision-makers and practitioners that are planning and implementing LEDS at the regional, national, and local levels. Read more and download past webinars

Regional-Specific Capacity Building

The Transport Working Group has successful partnerships with the network’s regional platforms that include the Asia LEDS Partnership (ALP) and LEDS Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Regional Platform, as well as a presence in Africa through UNEP. The Transport Working Group coordinates with regional platforms and other LEDS Working Groups to design trainings and support knowledge-sharing that serves the specific needs of that region.

In-country Support

The Transport Working offers deep dive, in-country support to governments on specific transport issues and policies to build ambition for low emission transport development. This support includes workshops with peer experts, technical assistance and guidance on how to incorporate low emission transport development strategies into a national and sub-national planning and policy.
