This self-paced e-learning course discusses the rationale for Low Emissions Development policy and the expected benefits of such policies. The discussion considers both contributions to global emissions reductions and local development opportunities. The course continues with a broad overview of LED policy instruments with examples of how these instruments have been implemented worldwide, and provides policy tools and strategic guidance for identifying and selecting policy instruments suitable to specific needs. To facilitate learning, in-depth policy case studies provide participants with the opportunity to identify how policy instruments may be designed and implemented in practice.
Note: The training is also offered as a facilitated course twice annually with e-Certificates issued upon successful completion. The facilitated version features guidance of an expert facilitator to lead participants through lessons and moderate the ‘peer discussion forum’ where participants interact to share knowledge.
