  • Areas of strengths and weaknesses in capacity of public and private sectors to support LEDS-related initiatives

Evaluating public and private sector capacity is a necessary component of preparing an effective low emission development strategy. Assessing this overall capacity is the first component of a comprehensive market assessment of technology and land-use options to reduce emissions. Barriers related to public and private sector capacity must be examined before evaluating policy options in stage 3c to ensure that the necessary instruments and mechanisms are in place to address these barriers.

  • First stakeholders can determine whether there are studies relating to public and private sector capacity to support low carbon initiatives that have already been developed for the country.The resources below in table 2.3.1 provide country specific indicators and reports which can be a starting point for assessing capacity.
  • If a detailed public and private sector capacity assessment does not exist for the country, the stakeholders can review studies that have been developed for other countries as a starting point for design of a LEDS country capacity report. This country capacity report can be used as a starting point for the market assessment in step 3b.1 and help in determining how best to address barriers through policy design. The following are examples of country-specific reports that assess public and private sector capacity.
