Posted March 6, 2017 at 10:40

A modelling scoping meeting for the Africa LEDS Project took place in Accra, Ghana, at the beginning of March with the objective of ensuring alignment between the project and the Ghanaian national plans, including the Ghana Vision 2020, the NDCs and the National Development blueprint. A range of modelling stakeholders from government, academia and the private sector participated in the meeting presenting on the country’s priorities and the current status of modelling activities. Clean energy and agriculture were identified by stakeholders as priority areas. The Africa LEDS Project will complement activities in these two sectors through the analysis of employment and economic expansion in relation to carbon offsets, informing national policy to assist the implementation of the 2020 vision.
