Asia Low Emission Development Strategies Partnership (ALP)

The Asia Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Partnership is a voluntary regional network that promotes and enables low-emission, climate-resilient development across the Asia and Pacific region through peer-to-peer learning, knowledge sharing, and improved coordination and cooperation among governmental and non-governmental partners. Its goal is to advance the development of country-led and country-specific strategic plans to promote economic growth while reducing GHG emissions without causing trade-offs to other environmental pressures – in the Asia region. Supporting the development and implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCS) is a key objective of the Partnership.


Launched in September 2012, the Asia LEDS Partnership is one of four regional platforms of LEDS Global Partnership, an initiative of more than 300 institutions across government agencies, technical institutes, international agencies, and NGOS launched in 2011.


Its members include 371 organizations and 754 individuals from the public, private, and non-governmental sectors - active in designing, promoting, and/or implementing LEDS and broader green growth initiatives.


Taiwan delegations led by the Environmental Protection Administration have engaged in “substantive participation” in the annual Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) by taking part in side events and discussions, setting up display booths, and so on at the gathering. During UNFCC COP22 in November 2016, the ALP Secretariat invited Taiwan to join the Partnership. Subsequently, with the help of ALP Secretary-General Emani Kumar and Mr. Tze-Luen Alan Lin, deputy executive director of the Executive Yuan’s Office of Energy and Carbon Reduction, the MOEA in February 2018 joined ALP as a member representing Taiwan and was invited to serve as a member of the Partnership’s Steering Committee.




The MOEA’s Department of International Cooperation, which serves as the designated agency handling matters pertaining to Taiwan’s membership in ALP, has set up an inter-ministerial working group to promote Taiwan’s participation in ALP-related activities and events and to enhance exchanges with other ALP members.




The Asia LEDS Partnership objectives are:

  • Coordination, collaboration, and partnerships: Facilitate enhanced collaboration among governments, development organizations, NGOs, businesses, academe, and others actively engaged in LEDS in the region, including work to maximize results while minimizing duplication.
  • Tools and best practices: Identify and disseminate tools, models, approaches, and best practices in priority LEDS topics to enable peer-to-peer learning and application across the region.
  • Capacity building: Foster capacity building of practitioners to make Asia a leader in designing and implementing LEDS and green growth.
  • Leadership and awareness: Strengthen support for LEDS across Asia by inspiring and catalyzing leaders of change and raising awareness about the benefits and methods of promoting LEDS.
