5-day training in Uganda on modeling and evaluation of climate change mitigation measures with the model e3.ug
During the training from September 5-10, 2022, in Entebbe (Uganda) with representatives from politics, science, statistics and NGOs, first study results of the DIAPOL-CE project „Climate-economy modelling in Uganda“ were presented and discussed.
The participants were trained in the use of the macroeconomic model e3.ug. The explanations by Dr. Anett Großmann and Frank Hohmann (GWS) were accompanied by practical exercises. The first climate change scenarios were calculated independently and first experiences in model building (data update, regressions, and model extensions) were gained.
The e3.ug model is an economy-energy-emission model for Uganda that follows the principles of the U4RIA initiative which focuses on transparent modeling. The Excel-based modeling approach and the ability to integrate data, model equations, scenario assumptions and results in one Excel file, facilitates the implementation of these principles.
