TRAnsition Pathways project launches in Zambia
In late February, CCG’s Dr Julia Tomei and Oliver Broad were in Zambia for the launch of the project: TRAnsition Pathways towards inclusive climate compatible growth in Zambia (TRAP-ZM). This project is funded through the Southern Partners fund. The launch, held on 17 February, attracted excellent levels of attendance from across government, universities, and professional associations as well as valuable media coverage on local television and in print.
TRAP-ZM aims to provide evidence to support the development of inclusive transition pathways to climate compatible growth in Zambia. Its work on energy modelling and scenario analysis will cover economic impacts and the implications for land use. The policy aspect of the project will consider the bankability of a range of energy projects. Finally, the issue of capacity building will be explored, given the increasing demand for staff trained in technical fields – such as engineering and economics – who would be able to provide advice to policymakers locally.
