Guidance on Low Emission Land Use Planning
USAID's Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests (USAID LEAF) program has developed a number of sub-national jurisdictional low emission land use plans and this guidance document arises from the challenges these planning processes have faced and the lessons learned. USAID LEAF and the United States Forest Service (USFS) have jointly developed curricula for Asia-Pacific universities on a range of issues including a module on ‘Low Emission Land Use Planning’. This document provides a general framework that is flexible, scalable and adaptable to a variety of different contexts with the goal of producing a low emission land use plan.
