Project Description
IDB: "The goal of the project is to foster the creation of an ecosystem of modelers in LAC with the following objectives: (i) it will train academic teams and/or think tanks in the use of models they cannot currently use, relying on best practices by more advanced teams in IDB member countries; (ii) to showcase these models to local policymakers, prove their value to inform policy decisions, and start a dialogue, the teams will use their new modeling capacity to answer a research question of relevance to the national context, and will disseminate the results domestically; (iii) to support a public debate on NDC planning, they will generate emission reduction pathways for their respective countries; (iv) to develop a regional community of practice that is capable of discussing modeling approaches and assessments of climate policies, share experiences and continue to develop expertise, the teams will meet during regional workshops and compare their approaches and lessons learned; and (v) to improve the transparency of international stocktaking on NDCs and general awareness of the value of using prospective models to produce decarbonization pathways and inform the policy debate around NDCs, the results of all the activities will be communicated and disseminated broadly."
