Africa Climate Week 2023: Side event on LT-LEDS

September 7 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm

As part of Africa Climate Week 2023, the 2050 Pathways Platform is co-hosting a side event on LT-LEDS in partnership with the NDC Partnership, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and IDDRI. Named LT-LEDS as a Social, Economic and Environment Instrument: Challenges and Opportunities in Africa, the hybrid event will take place on Thursday 7 September 2023 from 13.30 to 14.30 (Nairobi time) in the Atlas Mountain Room of the KICC venue. Participants can also join the session virtually via Teams.

The event will bring together representatives from multiple regions of Africa, together with international agencies and organisations that work with LT-LEDS. The main goal is to share experiences and knowledge, to raise awareness about the importance of LT-LEDS, their multidimensional components, the steps needed and the implications of developing a LT-LEDS, and possible challenges and opportunities LT-LEDS brings to countries.

The 2050 Pathways Platform will moderate a discussion of countries’ best practices and lessons learned on LT-LEDS. Speakers will include representatives from Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Eswatini’s Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Affairs, the NDC Partnership and UNDP.
