94 7/4/2016 Podgorica, Montenegro

The final LEAP Training workshop of the current phase of ECRAN (Environment and Climate Regional Accession Network) held in Podgorica, Montenegro on July 5th and 6th, 2016.

ECRAN is financed by the EU and managed by the European Commission. It assists beneficiary countries in the exchange of information and experience related to preparation for accession to the European Union.

ECRAN is strengthening regional cooperation between the EU candidate countries and potential candidates in the fields of environment and climate action and assisting their progress in the transposition and implementation of the EU environmental and climate agenda.

This is the final LEAP workshop in a series, in which ECRAN has been building capacity among Government agencies and other institutions in the Balkan accession countries to apply LEAP for energy planning and climate change mitigation assessment. ECRAN has benefited eight countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia (now an EU member), the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey.

This final workshop is for 13 participants from Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and will be an opprtunity for those countries to continue refining the LEAP analyses they started developing earlier. In particular, participants from the two countries will be working on building their baseline scenarios, and then developing mitigation scenarios that approach carbon neutrality and “net zero total emissions” over the next few decades.

Technical Training Workshop on Using LEAP for Climate Change Mitigation Assessments in the Energy and Transportation Sectors in Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.

This was the first technical training workshop for the Asian Development Bank (ADB) project "Economics of Climate Change in Central and West Asia"

The workshop was designed to support the climate change mitigation component of the project, whichfocused on assessing the costs of mitigation measures and clean energy technologies, and demonstrate how LEAP can be applied to the economic analysis of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation options in the energy and transportation sectors. The workshop built capacity of government decision makers in economic analysis of low-carbon growth measures and in assessing policies to strengthen the consideration of costs and benefits in national climate change reports and national communications.

Thirty technical representatives from governments, academic institutions, and energy and transportation agencies in Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan attended.

The workshop generated shared information and practical knowledge on using LEAP for economic analysis of mitigation options and a general understanding on data needs and gaps in Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.

The workshop was organized by Abt Associates and conducted by Abt and staff of the Stockholm Environment Institute.

129 7/18/2016 York, UK

A workshop was held at the Stockholm Environment Institute, York, with the aim of advancing national planning on short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in west Africa. The workshop was funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), and was attended by Dr Daniel Tutu Benefoh (Ghana EPA), and Dr Bala Bappa (Nigeria Ministry of Environment), as well as 3 SEI PhD students (Andriannah Mbandi, Ruchirek Ratchaburi, and Olajide Olawoyin).

The focus of the workshop was to derive the first SLCP focussed emission inventory using the LEAP-IBC tool for Nigeria, and to update the existing inventory which has been developed for Ghana. These emission inventories will be used to determine the key source sectors, and benefits that could result from SLCP mitigation in Nigeria and Ghana. The PhD students were trained in the use of LEAP-IBC to understand how it could further their research on transport emissions in Kenya and Thailand, and air pollution in west Africa.

133 8/9/2016 Lima, Peru

Staff from the US and UK centers of SEI travelled to Lima, Peru to conduct a workshop for 25 participants from various agencies in Peru including the Ministry of Environment (MINAM), The Ministry of Energy and Mines (MINEM), the Peruvian National Meterological and Hydrological Service (SENAMHI), The Geophysical Institution of Peru (IGP), GESTAs (The Peruvian Air Pollution Management Networks) from three cities: Ica, Pucallpa, Huancayo, and COSUDE (Swiss Development Cooperation), and the U.S. Embassy.

The workshop, which was funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and organized by Patricia Tord of the national SLCP unit of UNEP/MINAM, was to build capacity within Peru to apply the LEAP-Integrated Benefits Calculator (LEAP-IBC) to develop short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation strategies at a national scale. Participants learnt how to design and analyze SLCP strategies within LEAP-IBC to assess the health, crop yield and climate benefits that could result from their implementation.

134 5/18/2015 Tallinn, Estonia

Staff from the US and UK centers of SEI travelled to Tallinn, Estonia for a workshop at SEI-Tallinn that tested out the new LEAP toolkit for assessing Short Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs).

Teams came from SEI-Tallinn, the Estonian Environmental Research Center and the Estonian Ministry of Environment. The new toolkit joins LEAP with a separate model developed at SEI-York and based on the GeosChem-Adjoint model. It calculates the avoided deaths, crop losses, radiative forcing and regional temperature change that would result from undertaking policies to mitigate short-lived climate pollutants in any particular country. The new tool is intended for members of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and for anyone else interested in SLCPs.

135 8/12/2016 Bogota, Colombia

Second of two workshops in Latin America funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) intended to build capacity to apply the new LEAP-Integrated Benefits Calculator (LEAP-IBC) to develop short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation strategies at a national scale. Participants learnt how to design and analyze SLCP strategies within LEAP-IBC to assess the health, crop yield and climate benefits that could result from their implementation.

The workshop has been attended by 17 participants from the Ministerio de Ambiente y Desarrollo Sostenible (Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development), the Bogota Secretaria Distrital de Ambiente, the Departamento Nacional de Planeación (DNP) as well as academics from various Colombian Universities and other organizations. Organizers were Claudia Cuentas Morales of UNEP and the Ministerio de Ambiente y Desarrollo Sostenible and Luisa Castro of the Universidad de la Salle.

Synchronization of Electricity and Energy Planning in Indonesia

Following the finalization of Indonesia's National Energy Plan, there is a mandate that the 34 provinces of Indonesia should have their Regional Energy Planning completed within a one year timeframe. While waiting for the National Policy issuance, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia (MEMR) initiated a three and a half day LEAP introductory training for the representatives of 34 provinces across Indonesia. The workshop was attended by approxmiately 60 particpants from 34 provinces, while the instructors came from the National Energy Council, Planning Bureau of MEMR, Data and Information Center of MEMR, Training Center of MEMR and the Indonesian Institute of Energy Economics (IIEE).

The objective of the training was to introduce LEAP as a planning tool for the sub-national government and as the basis of their RUED documents, and to list the potential provincial modelers to be assigned as the LEAP modelers for RUED in the next LEAP trainings.

The workshop was funded by the Directorate General of Electricity, in cooperation with the Planning Bureau of Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) in Indonesia.
