This e-learning course aims to assist government officials, policymakers, development planners, climate change practitioners and carbon market agents to plan, design and implement policies for Low Emission Development (LED). The course starts by discussing the rationale for LED policy and the expected benefits of such policies. The discussion considers both contributions to global emissions reductions and local development opportunities. The course continues with a broad overview of LED policy instruments and is enriched with examples of how these instruments have been implemented worldwide. The course finalizes by providing policy diagnosis tools and strategic guidance for policy implementation. The diagnosis tools can help countries to identify and select policy instruments suitable to their specific needs.
