Definition

LEDS will enable countries to transition to low carbon economic development resulting in sustained growth in employment and investment, increased financial flows through carbon markets, reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and other social, economic, and environmental benefits. (OpenEI)

These country-driven strategies will catalyze cooperative public and private action to support the transition to low carbon economic development. The strategies will work toward sustained growth in employment and investment, increased flows of climate change-related finance, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and other social, economic, and environmental benefits.
