Posted July 13, 2018 at 08:23

This second session of the Africa Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land use (AFOLU) Community of Practice focused on tailoring the International Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (I-JEDI) model to support economic and job impact assessment in the AFOLU sectors, as well as current capabilities for the energy sector.

The session first provided an introduction to socio-economic impact assessment in the region and then dived into the I-JEDI tool. A country presenter from the Africa LEDS project detailed ways the model is planned to be applied in a country-specific context. The session concluded with an interactive discussion on possible needs and interests, as well as experiences and lessons learned, related to I-JEDI and similar
tools in the region.
