Key activities focus on:
The project offers a series of toolkits, training packages and context-specific, on-the-job coaching for subnational authorities in order to drive forward local low-emission development.
A series of thematic vertical climate dialogues creates a space for communities, businesses and staff from local, regional and national government levels to discuss and join efforts in order to plan and implement climate change actions collaboratively.
Peer-to-peer good practice exchange workshops and networking conferences allow communities, cities and counties to discuss practical solutions, gain inspiration and learn from each other’s achievements and challenges.
Research & global policy action
Four country studies analyse how multilevel climate governance enables local climate action. A series of ‘real practice’ studies documents promising collaborative climate mechanisms and the team shares project insights with the international community by leading workshops in key events.
The V-LED project is implemented between 2015-2021. It is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) as part of its International Climate Initiative (IKI).
