"The Low Emission Capacity Building Programme (LECBP) was launched in January 2011 as part of a joint collaboration between the European Union and UNDP. Since its inception the LECB Programme has grown both in scope and breadth, proudly including 25 participating countries and enhanced technical support through generous contributions from the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, the Australian Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, and AusAID.
This collaborative, country driven programme aims to strengthen technical and institutional capacities at the country level, while at the same time facilitating inclusion and coordination of the public and private sector in national initiatives addressing climate change. It does so by utilizing the global networks and substantial experience that UNDP has established through our wide portfolio of projects and programmes around the globe. The Low Emission Capacity Building Programme is part of the larger Green, Low-Emission Climate Resilient Development Strategy of UNDP and gains insight from and builds on global programmes and initiatives already developed by UNDP and donor countries."
