  • Training 3 - Ex-Ante Carbon-balance Tool (EX-ACT), Agriculture, Forestry, Land Use (AFOLU) sector, January 22-23, 2019
    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

    Training 4 - Green building certification as an effective instrument for carbon emission mitigation, Buildings sector, March 27-28, 2019
    TRAINING-4
    Training Course NameGreen building certification as an effective instrument for carbon emission mitigation
    Background and DescriptionBuildings is an important and fast-growing sector of the Turkish economy, and it is responsible for the significant share (11.5%) of the country’s GHG emissions. A ‘green’ building is a building that, in its design, construction or operation, reduces or eliminates negative impacts, and can create positive impacts, on our climate and natural environment. Green (environmental) building certification recognise and reward companies and organisations who build and operate more environmentally sound buildings with more efficient use of energy, materials and other resources. Green buildings are significant contributors to the global GHG emission reduction, and building certification (rating) systems are very popular worldwide. Turkey made substantial progress in the implementation of green buildings, and it is ranked among the top 10 countries in the world in terms of gross square meters of LEED-certified buildings. At the same time, it is just the beginning, and there is still a huge potential that is remaining for widespread dissemination of green building certification in Turkey.
