I Capacity Building Workshop

Climate Policy Database and Modelling Protocol

Date and time: May 31st, 2023 @1:00-3:30PM (CET)

The workshop was held online.

About the workshop:

The Climate Policy Database is a collaborative effort to track policy planning and adoption and identify global and national policy coverage gaps. We identify, categorise and analyse mitigation-relevant policies to support national ambition raising efforts. The database is maintained by NewClimate Institute with support from PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and Wageningen University and Research. During ELEVATE, the database will be updated and expanded with additional countries, sectors, domains (e.g., SDGs, biodiversity, energy security) and “good practice policies”. In addition, important assumptions, including implemented policies (i.e., current policies) and NDCs, and how these can be integrated into models, will be secured in the Climate Policy Modelling Protocol. The aim of this ELEVATE Capacity Building Workshop is to present the Climate Policy Database and the Modelling Protocol in a user-friendly way, helping teams navigate their attributes and enhancing implementation capacity across models, building upon the effort made during previous Horizon projects.

Speakers: Leonardo Nascimento (NewClimate), Santiago Woollands (NewClimate), Ioannis Dafnomilis (PBL) and Elena Hooijschuur (PBL)
Moderators: Zoi Vrontisi (E3M), Isabela Tagomori (PBL) and Sanchit Agarwal (TERI
