Key Products

  • Preliminary near- and long-term emissions and development goals, reflecting development priorities and capacity constraints

Based on the previous qualitative impact assessment of various clean energy technology and land use options, stakeholders can establish near- and long-term goals for each sector and the economy as a whole. The previous assessment will ideally provide metrics to later measure the actual outcomes of the LEDS in relation to goals set.

Goals established by countries could include the following aggregated benefits from mitigation actions:

  • Specific economy-wide goals for economic (e.g., jobs creation), social (e.g., education and health), and local environmental (e.g., air and water quality improvement) development and for reduced growth in GHG emissions (e.g., GHG emission levels)
  • Sector specific development (e.g., rural energy access) and low emission goals

Secure endorsement of goals by public and private sector leaders.

  • Securing endorsements by public and private sector leaders is very important at the end of this stage to ensure that there is strong support for the goals and that they are widely understood in the public sphere.
