The LEDS in Action side event will focus on areas of emerging LEDS leadership in Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, highlighting impactful activities of the LEDS GP regional platforms to advance LEDS, including clean energy measures, through peer learning and technical support. The event will also highlight resources and services available from the global working groups of the LEDS GP on finance, benefits assessment, sub-national programs, and energy, AFOLU, and transport measures. It will emphasize discussions with the audience to support learning from a diverse group of LEDS stakeholders and to identify key opportunities to enhance these regional and global programs going forward.

Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) Third Annual Conference "Fiscal Policies and the Green Economy Transition: Generating Knowledge – Creating Impact
29-30 January 2015
The event is hosted in partnership with the University of Venice, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The GGKP was established by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), UNEP and the World Bank. Fiscal instruments, such as environmental taxes, pollution charges, subsidies for green technologies, green budgeting, and tax incentives can play a crucial role in promoting a green economy by creating needed fiscal space while limiting environmental externalities. The key to successful implementation and political acceptance of fiscal instruments hinges on effective complementary measures, in particular, addressing distributional impacts.
