Local low emission development

The Urban-LEDS project provided an opportunity for two South African cities (KwaDukuza and Steve Tshwete) to be guided in developing their Low Emissions Development Strategies using ICLEI’s GreenClimateCities methodology. The strategies were bolstered by thorough analysis of the energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions and strategic transition areas for each city, and evidence the use of innovative approaches within the emerging discipline of low emission development.
