About Urban-LEDS II

UN-Habitat and ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability are jointly implementing the Urban-LEDS II project: Accelerating climate action through the promotion of Urban Low Emission Development Strategies in more than 60 cities worldwide in the Urban-LEDS II project, using a multilevel governance approach to urban climate action. The project is funded by the European Union.

Through the Urban-LEDS II project, the local governments of selected cities are guided to create Urban Low Emissions Development Strategies (Urban LEDS) that also address climate resilience. These will be aligned to and ideally inform the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), and implementation of these plans will start in the project lifetime.

Further, local governments will be supported to develop pilot projects and finance models for their Urban LEDS implementation. The overall Urban-LEDS II project aims to strengthen cooperation and information sharing across national and local governments, offering an integrated Measuring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) concept and guidance on multilevel governance, to support all levels of government to better understand the contribution of local level developments to support achieving national and global climate and sustainability goals.
