Developing countries exploring pathways to climate compatibility

Webinar : Building evidence for INDCs: The MAPS Experience in Latin America


The Mitigation Action Plans and Scenarios (MAPS) programme is a south-south collaboration amongst developing countries to generate the evidence base for long-term climate compatible development. Through MAPS, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru have been able to conduct nationally mandated research-processes for developing long term mitigation scenarios, supported by a team of experts in South Africa who implemented this approach for the first time in 2005 (known as Long Term Mitigation Scenarios). A broad range of stakeholders are being involved in developing evidence for mitigation action plans and scenarios.

This webinar is a collaboration among the LEDS LAC Platform, the Africa LEDS Partnership and the MAPS Programme. The event will feature a presentation of the MAPS approach and its results in Chile, as well as the way Chile and other Latin American countries are banking on the MAPS processes to develop the intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) that they must submit to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change.

We invite you to register here for the Africa LEDS Partnership & LEDS LAC Webinar-Building evidence for INDCs: The MAPS Experience in Latin America.

Date: Thursday , May 7
