  • Training 2 - Computer Programme to Calculate Emissions from Road Transpor (COPERT 5) Modelling Tool, Transport sector, November 27-28, 2018
    TRAINING-2
    Training Course NameComputer Programme to Calculate Emissions from Road Transport (COPERT 5 Modelling Tool)
    DescriptionCOPERT is the EU standard vehicle emissions calculator. It uses vehicle population, mileage, speed and other data such as ambient temperature and calculates emissions and energy consumption for a specific country or region. Also, COPERT is a technologically advanced, transparent and internationally recognised research tool. COPERT is developed by EMISIA.

    Model Presenter(s)Chariton (Charis) Kouridis - He is the main developer of COPERT 3 and has been working with the development of the methodology ever since. He is a project manager in EMISIA since 2008 and his expertise includes emissions and energy consumption calculation from road transport. He is supporting COPERT users and monitors the development of the methodology.

    Nikolaos (Nick) Zisis - He is the main developer of COPERT version 5 and he is currently maintaining and supporting the software. At the same time he is working on EMISIA’s SIBYL, a projection tool for vehicle population, emissions and energy consumption.

  • Training 3 - Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT), Agriculture, Forestry, Land Use (AFOLU) sector, January 22-23, 2018
    TRAINING-3
    Training Course NameEx-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT)
    DescriptionThe EX-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT), developed by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), is a useful tool for estimating GHG emissions and carbon sequestration in AFOLU projects.
    WebsiteEX-ACT Tool
    Duration 2 day
    DateJanuary 22-23, 2019
    VenueMövenpick Hotel Çukurambar, Ankara
    Objectives EX-ACT is a land-based accounting system, estimating C stock changes (i.e. emissions or sinks of CO2) as well as GHG emissions per unit of land, expressed in equivalent tonnes of CO2 per hectare and year. The tool helps project designers to estimate and prioritize project activities with high benefits in economic and climate change mitigation terms. The amount of GHG mitigation may also be used as part of economic analyses as well as for the application for additional project funds.

    EX-ACT can be applied on a wide range of development projects from all AFOLU sub-sectors, including besides others projects on climate change mitigation, sustainable land management, watershed development, production intensification, food security, livestock, forest management or land use change. Further, it is cost-effective, requires a compared small amount of data, and has resources (tables, maps) which can help finding the required information. While EX-ACT is mostly used at project level it may easily be up-scaled to the programme/sector level and can also be used for policy analysis.
    Approach• A set of linked Microsoft Excel sheets
    • Structured in nine logical topic modules
    • Based on land use and management practices
    • Equipped with a set of resource (tables, maps, FAO statistical data) that help to populate the tool
    • Using IPCC default values (Tier 1) and/or region specific coefficients (Tier 2)
    • Comparing the situation without and with project
    Participants• Ministry of Environment and Urbanization
    • Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry
    • TURKSTAT
    • Other Governmental and non-governmental institutions
    • Academics
    • Project technical team members and sectoral experts
