Learning Platform (LP)

Established in 2011 by the French Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI), the Learning Platform on Climate Policies (LP) is an independent forum for the exchange of policy expertise and experiences between developed and developing countries. This initiative aims at building an international network of energy and climate policy experts, gathering all the relevant stakeholders in the partner countries and relying on IDDRI’s extensive network, developed at the international level for a decade.

For its first implementation year, the LP involves the European Union and the two Asian giants that are China and India, which already account or will account for a large part of global GHG emissions. They are key countries at international level in the UN negotiation process on Climate Change, and have both demonstrated real willingness to find new ways of development, greener and more « inclusive », passing or discussing innovative energy and climate policy packages.
