FY 16-17: Agency Priority Goal

Climate Change

Priority Goal

Climate Change

Combat global climate change by supporting the transition to high-performing, low-carbon economies. 

By September 30, 2017, U.S. government partnerships with developing countries to refine and implement their low emission development strategies (LEDS) will result in achievement of 100 (from a baseline of 46) major  milestones which contribute to significant, measureable progress toward achieving domestic and international contributions to global greenhouse gas reductions.  At least 4,000 developing country government officials and practitioners (from a baseline of 2,000) will strengthen their LEDS capacity through participation in the LEDS Global Partnership (GP), and that capacity will result in strengthened LEDS policies or measures in 24 countries (from a baseline of 0).
