In accordance with the commitment of all parties to the UNFCCC to support climate change efforts at the national level, Low emission Capacity Building Programme (LECB) project will enable Egypt to strengthen national capacities to do the following:

  1. Design a low-emission development strategy (LEDS).
  2. Identify opportunities for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in the context of national development.
  3. Facilitate the design and adoption of mitigation actions by selected industries.
  4. Design systems for Measuring, Reporting, and Verifying (MRV) mitigation actions. The Project will target the Public and Private (Industrial) Sectors.

The project will, also, develop the capacity of experts and institutions in Egypt to respond to opportunities that have been identified for engaging Public Sector and Industry support and participation in addressing the issue of climate change. The Project seeks to build on various initiatives already developed by UNDP and partners, including the National Communication Support Programme (NCSP).
