Organizing the LEDS Process provides an opportunity for countries to consider LEDS in the context of national development priorities and existing climate-related programs.

To ensure that LEDS incorporates actions and studies already undertaken, stakeholder groups can begin with an initial review of country-specific analyses and data (e.g., GHG emissions inventory, carbon supply curves, climate technology needs assessments), current climate initiatives (national and international) and existing clean energy, land use, and market readiness initiatives.

Stakeholders can then use this generalized framework to map out a process for a LEDS that effectively incorporates current activities and identifies remaining gaps.
