Regional Training Course: Assessing the role of cost-effective energy technologies, including nuclear power, as INDCs for climate change mitigation

1 – 5 August 2016

Deadline for Nominations: 15 April 2016

Purpose

The 2015 Paris Agreement requires all countries to design various measures for combating the threats of climate change and submit to the UNFCCC plans for their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) to reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs). Energy systems, the major source of GHG emissions, will be the main targets for designing such measures.

There is a need to identify and evaluate cost-effective low-carbon energy technologies for future investment decisions. National efforts should also be aligned with the international targets set in the Paris Agreement for holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial averages - preferably below 1.5°C. The expertise needed to conduct necessary assessments are particularly lacking in a number of developing countries.

This training course will help strengthen local expertise for evaluating energy options, including nuclear power, to assess the role of these technologies in combating climate change.
