The course starts by discussing the rationale for Low Emissions Development (LED) policy and the expected benefits of such policies. The discussion considers both contributions to global emissions reductions and local development opportunities such as:
- Increased energy security by reducing the dependence on fossil fuels and exposure to volatile prices.
- Increased industrial productivity as a consequence of energy efficiency measures.
- New economic opportunities and employment through deployment and diffusion of low carbon technologies.
- Reduced costs of environmental degradation.
The course finalizes by providing policy diagnosis tools and strategic guidance for policy implementation. The diagnosis tools can help countries to identify and select policy instruments suitable to their 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.
