Joint ICTP-IAEA College on the Evaluation of Cost Effective Energy Options as Nationally Determined Contributions for Climate Change Mitigation (2021)

The transition to low carbon economies depends heavily on actions within energy systems, as the major source of anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHG). There is a need to identify and evaluate cost-effective, low-carbon energy demand and supply paths of the future.


The expertise to conduct such assessments is lacking in many developing countries. Special tools and methodologies are needed to conduct assessments for developing a realistic set of NDCs. This course will provide information about energy-related climate and sustainable development issues and interlinkages, and training on the evaluation of NDCs. The course is aimed at improving the knowledge and skills needed for the assessment of various energy technologies in relation to climate change and consequently provide national policymakers with technically sound information.
