AfLP Annual Event Presentations 2017

Posted October 30, 2017 at 09:29

Please see below the presentations from the fourth annual workshop of the Africa LEDS Partnership, which took place on 4-5th October 2017 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The theme of this year’s event was the integration of low emission development strategies into the development priorities of the continent as put forward by the African Union’s Agenda 2063 – The Future We Want – and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

With representation from 20 countries across Africa, the event provided an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and networking among members on the three priority areas of the AfLP: energy, finance and agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU). Sessions included experiences of mainstreaming LEDS into national planning and implementation; discussions around engaging the private sector through the new IKI MPI project; updates from the Africa LEDS Project; highlights from the REAL service; and the current and future priorities of the AfLP.
