December 17, 2014 – The Sub-National Integration Working Group of the Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Global Partnership has developed draft guidance to help national and local government partners better integrate planning and implementation of actions related to addressing climate change. As new tools and resources are identified they will be added in subsequent versions.
The paper introduces the importance of effective integration between national and sub-national government when designing and implementing climate resilient, low emission development strategies. Based on the latest practitioner and research insights, the document is illustrated with case examples from around the world and outlines the key opportunities, barriers, and solutions for improving integrated climate action. An initial list of useful resources is also included for the reader to explore further.
