Antigua & Barbuda held an inception workshop to mark the start of a second collaboration between the country, ICAT, and the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute.
This second phase will focus on the transport sector, specifically enhancing institutional modeling capacity to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector.
The first phase of the ICAT project was successful in establishing two economy-wide modeling frameworks. The ICAT tools, GACMO and LEAP, were used in the first phase. The second phase will build on this success to enhance institutional modeling capacity to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector.
The project will also analyze the impact of its electricity mobility transition measures on selected sustainable development goals.
Several tools will be reviewed and applied. This includes the TraCAD tool (an ICAT tool developed for the transport sector, for data collection, policy impact assessment and tracking, and mitigation cost analysis).
The outputs of the project are expected to enhance Antigua & Barbuda’s capacity to improve policy making related to electric vehicles; track NDC implementation; and untap international climate finance to meet its conditional NDC targets. In addition, by reducing air pollution, Antigua & Barbuda will make considerable progress towards achieving sustainable development goals.
