Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Abt Associates has begun a two-year regional program for the Asian Development Bank to estimate the cost of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the energy and transportation sectors of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan.
The two-year technical assistance project — known as The Economics of Climate Change Mitigation in Central and West Asia — assesses the costs and benefits of greenhouse gas emission reduction, prepares Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), and designs low-carbon development investment proposals to address mitigation priorities. The project also will train national stakeholders on cutting-edge tools for emission reduction scenarios.
