In 2018, the USAID South Africa Low Emissions Development (SA-LED) program engaged EcoDistricts, a U.S.-based non-governmental organization, to deliver a one-day training for 70 municipal staff from the City of Johannesburg in South Africa.
From 2016 to 2018, the USAID South Africa Low Emissions Development (SA-LED) program carried out a series of training workshops for municipal officials on the use of the Clean Energy Emissions Reduction (CLEER) Tool.
This 60-90 minute online guided tour of the CRM process includes brief descriptions, 2-3 minute videos and interactive questions. Alternatively, you may skip to a specific step to get advice on that aspect of CRM.
The CLEER Tool is a web-based platform that provides a consistent and user-friendly approach for estimating and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduced or avoided across USAID Clean Energy programs.
This training package is a standalone capacity building program targeted at government officials and climate change practitioners, focusing on integrating gender into climate change adaptation (CCA) practices.
This resource helps USAID staff and development practitioners find in-depth technical training on adaptation, clean energy, low-emission development, climate mainstreaming (integration) and land sector mitigation (sustainable landscapes).
On November 17, 2016, the Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with USAID and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), hosted a webinar titled Distributed Solar on the Grid: Opportunities and Challenges.
