The Urban-LEDS II project is making a global impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Accelerating climate action through the promotion of Urban Low Emission Development Strategies (Urban-LEDS II) is a global initiative which proceeds from the first phase of Urban-LEDS (2012–2015). The project aims to support local governments in emerging economies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through low emission development and increase resilience through climate change adaptation actions.
Urban-LEDS II commenced in 2017 and works in Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Rwanda and South Africa. In Rwanda, the project works in seven cities and districts.
Both Urban LEDS phases have been funded by the European Commission and implemented jointly by UN-Habitat and ICLEI.
