The US Agency for International Development Low Emissions Asian Development (USAID LEAD) program, in collaboration with the USAID Indonesia Clean Energy Development (USAID ICED) program and the Asian Greenhouse Gas Management Center (AGMC), will host two regional events in March 2014 on using LEAP for greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation assessment. For both events, limited funding is available, courtesy of the USAID LEAD program, to cover some of the travel costs for selected individuals from the LEAD program countries: Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) is a widely-used software tool for energy policy analysis and climate change mitigation assessment which has been adopted by thousands of organizations in more than 190 countries. Users include government agencies, academics, non-governmental organizations, consulting companies, and energy utilities. It has been used at many different scales ranging from cities and states to national, regional, and global applications.
