LECB Programme

The Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme was a joint initiative between the European Commission (EC), governments of Germany and Australia, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). It was implemented by UNDP.

The programme fulfilled its overall objective and increased the capacity in public and private sector to address mitigation challenges in general and to strengthen GHG inventories; develop LEDS and NAMAs; and develop systems to measure, report and verify climate data.

It was launched in January 2011 (EU (co)funded Action start date: 16 December 2010) and finalised by the end of 2018, after being extended for two years.

The LECB Programme served as an incubator for the targeted INDC Project and a foundation for the NDC Support Programme.
