Policy dialogue and knowledge management on climate protection and adaptation strategies in Mongolia and Uganda

As part of the Paris Agreement, Mongolia and Uganda have submitted strategies to transform to low-carbon economies. At the same time, both countries are confronted with climate change impacting key economic processes. Therefore, it is of key concern to plan and implement sectoral adaptation and climate protection measures which enable a transition to a climate-friendly and climate-resilient economic development.

The project builds upon knowledge and country-specific, Excel-based E3 (economy, energy, emission) models established in the projects  “Policy Dialogue and Knowledge Management on Climate Protection Strategies (DIAPOL-CE)” and Climate Resilient Economic Development (CRED)  commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The e3.ug and e3.mn models support evidence-based policy advise by quantifying the impacts of climate protection and climate change adaptation policies.

Key objectives of the project are to transfer and disseminate climate friendly and climate resilient economic modeling and to build capacities in using the E3 models for evidence-based policymaking.

The project is commissioned by the BMUV and is implemented by GIZ.
