Carbon calculations demystified - Jordan

11 July 2022

Carbon calculations were demystified at a two-day workshop in Amman. The participants - a mix of government staff and consultants - took a deep dive into how climate change can be addressed in ESIA. We covered sophisticated risk assessment and GHG quantification methods as well as more simplified checklists. The good news is that the simplified checklist approach may already be a good first step towards more resilient or low carbon project options. The workshop is part of ongoing professional learning and exchange process facilitated by the Jordan Ministry Environment, the NCEA and GIZ.
