Promoting Low Emission Urban
Development Strategies in Emerging Economy Countries

The Urban-LEDS Project “Promoting Low Emission Urban
Development Strategies in Emerging Economy Countries”
(the Project) was initiated in partnership between United
Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and
ICLEI – Local Government for Sustainability to support low
emissions development and address climate change, funded
by the European Commission (EC). ICLEI has the principal
project implementation responsibilities working through
its ICLEI country offices. ICLEI implemented the project in
four countries (Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Africa). In
each of those countries the team worked with two Model
Cities that received intensive assistance, as well as between
four and six Satellite Cities that engaged to a lesser degree.
A handful of European cities served as resource cities. The
team implemented the project through a set of seven “Work
Packages”. UN-Habitat has administrative responsibilities
and participated in focused technical activities providing
project support.
