The Asia LEDS Partnership is a voluntary regional network comprised of individuals and organizations from the public, private, and non-governmental sectors active in designing, promoting, and/or implementing Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) in the Asia- Pacific region.
The ALP Steering Committee members consist of prominent representatives in the Asia-Pacific region from national governments, developmental and donor organisations, research institutions, non-governmental organisations and private sector entities. The members provide strategic advice on the work-plan of the ALP and its subsequent activities.
14 Asian countries (Nepal, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Republic of Korea, Myanmar, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka).
ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability serves as the Secretariat for the Asia LEDS Partnership
A Community of Practice (CoP) is a network of engaged experts and practitioners from a sector or working area who come together as a group to regularly engage in peer -to- peer learning to improve their personal and collective group knowledge.
The Building Energy Efficiency
(BBE) CoP focus on building
energy efficiency activities and
convergence of sub-national
building energy efficiency plans
at national levels. The BEE CoP
activities are designed with an
intent to capture, support and
facilitate the needs of sub-national
governments to promote uptake of
actions to enhance building energy
The Clean Mobility CoP addresses challenges and opportunities towards the implementation of low emissions development
strategies (LEDS), including usage of clean fuels and electric mobility, in the transport sector. The Clean Mobility CoP supports
governments in transitioning towards clean mobility by strengthening the operational aspects and efficiency of public transport
policies and systems in the Asia region.
The Grid-scale Renewable Energy (GRE) CoP brings together national and subnational governments, regulators, system
operators, technical institutions, businesses, non-profits, and international organizations to discuss the policy, financing,
technical challenges and solutions related to grid integration, competitive procurement and zoning of renewable energy
projects across the Asia region.
The NDC Finance CoP addresses financial, policy and technical challenges to accelerate investment flows into NDC implementation efforts across the Asia-Pacific region
The Sub-National Integration (SNI) CoP
addresses issues and opportunities in
effectively integrating multi-level governance,
through facilitation of cross-sectoral
cooperation and the integration of climate
policies and actions between national and
subnational governments (vertically and
horizontally), as well as with the private sector
and civil society for helping countries in the
Asia-Pacific region achieve their Nationally
Determined Contribution (NDC) targets
