About the event

LEAP is fast becoming the de facto standard for countries undertaking integrated resource planning, greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation assessments, and Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) especially in the developing world, and many countries have also chosen to use LEAP as part of their commitment to report under the UNFCCC. More and more countries continue to use LEAP to create energy and emissions scenarios that were the basis for their Nationally Determined Contributions and will track their NDC progress based on regular updates of the model results.

Based on the request from the Republic of Azerbaijan to build the capacity of their national experts in using the LEAP modelling, the CBIT-GSP project intends to address this request by delivering the hands-on in-room training for key specialists from the key ministries and organizations of Azerbaijan on LEAP modeling. 


The main objective of the training is to instruct and guide the participants from the key organizations dealing with energy development as well as with modelling and scenarios of GHG emissions, on the practical use of LEAP model.

It is expected that the participants will acquire practical knowledge on how to operate with the LEAP model and what type of data are needed for processing. The improved knowledge on LEAP will result in better understanding of the NDC implementation progress in Azerbaijan for better decision making. 

Target Audience and Language

The training will gather key specialists and experts working on GHG Inventory, modelling and scenario for GHG emissions, mitigation actions and NDC. It is expected that the participants will represent key implementing organizations of the transparency and climate reporting in the face of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, Hydromet, Ministry of Energy and its subsidiary branches, and Azerbaijan Branch of the REC Caucasus. 

The training will be held in English and Russian.
