Coordinating Low Emission Development in Colombia
Climate mitigation and support for the Government of South Africa’s green growth agenda were central to the conception of USAID South Africa Low Emissions Development Program (SA-LED).
USAID has been supporting countries in low-emissions long-term planning through its Transparency and Long-term Strategies (T-LTS) project. This support is particularly relevant against the backdrop of the United States rejoining the Paris Agreement and announcing its renewed commitment to addressing the climate crisis, both at home and abroad.
South Asia, home to a quarter of the world’s population and a major energy consumer with some of the fastest-growing economies in the world, is also home to some of the greatest climate disasters.
