The Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Platform for Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS LAC) II Regional Workshop took place during 5–6 December, 2013 in Lima, Peru to promote low-carbon development with a resilience approach through the exchange of experiences between experts both from region and outside of it. Hosted by the Peruvian Government and organized in conjunction with InterCLIMA 2013, the gathering provided a forum for officials from Latin America, international organizations, technical experts, and other stakeholders in the region to share experiences and best practices, participate in training, establish collaborative and work links, and find innovative ways to make low-carbon emission development to also be resilient to the impacts of climate change.
The event had a special focus on:
- Planning and stakeholder engagement processes
- Policies and good practices
- Analysis of the co-benefits brought through GHG emission reduction
- Low-emission development financing
Approximately 100 speakers and panelists and more than 200 participants from 25 countries took part in the event, including a representative of the Asia LEDS Partnership Secretariat.
