The next AFOLU CoP webinar will be held on 28th June and will cover: Jobs and Economic Development Impact Assessment in the AFOLU sector – Adapting the I-JEDI model. We encourage all of the AfLP members to attend this webinar, especially those with a keen interest in AFOLU-related matters.
This second session of the Africa Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land use (AFOLU) Community of Practice will focus on tailoring of 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 will first provide an introduction to socio-economic impact assessment in the region and then dive into the I-JEDI tool. A country presenter from the Africa LEDS project will also detail ways the model is planned to be applied in a country-specific context. The session will conclude 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.
