Support for Low Emission Development in SEE (SLED)
The project is proposed by REC and UNDP Kosovo to support low emission development in the South East European region. The project provides background for stakeholders involved in developing strategies, policies and measures as well as identifying opportunities for direct investment. It will build upon other existing initiatives supporting the same aim in the region, such as the LOCSEE (Low Carbon South East Europe), RENA (Regional Environmental Network for Accession) and ECRAN (Environment and Climate Regional accession Network) projects.
The project geographically covers Albania, F.Y.R. of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Serbia and encompasses two major components, the first one targeting 4 SEE countries Albania, F.Y.R. of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, the second component focuses on Kosovo.
Component 1 aims at (I) providing assessment and options in the low emission development transformation of four countries in the electricity sector and (II) providing policy options regarding increasing energy efficiency in buildings for the region with replicable methodology. It will be implemented by REC.
The main objective of Component 2 is to support the Government of Kosovo to mainstream climate change concerns into sectorial and overall Kosovo’s development priorities, thus enabling Kosovo to deal with climate change-related issues in practical terms, and to consider it not only as a separate horizontal issue, but as an integrative issue of sustainable development. Component 2 will be implemented by UNDP.
