As part of the COMMITTED project, Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) will host a knowledge-sharing and capacity-building workshop aimed at addressing critical issues related to climate change mitigation in Pakistan and beyond.

About the Workshop:

The workshop seeks to foster collaboration between national modeling teams, stakeholders, and global Integrated Assessment Modeling (IAM) experts to explore the role of model-based policymaking in supporting climate change mitigation efforts at the national level. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, the workshop aims to facilitate meaningful discussions on the challenges, opportunities, and best practices associated with modeling for climate policy formulation.

Key Objectives:

  1. Enhancing Modeling Capacities: The workshop aims to strengthen the capacity of Pakistani researchers, policymakers, and stakeholders in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions modeling and scenario analysis.
  2. Facilitating Knowledge Exchange: Through interactive sessions and discussions, participants will have the opportunity to share experiences, insights, and lessons learned from modeling efforts in both the European Union (EU) and Asian countries.
  3. Promoting Stakeholder Engagement: The workshop will emphasize the importance of engaging relevant stakeholders in the modeling process to ensure the development of robust and contextually relevant mitigation strategies.

Workshop Topics:

  • Integrated Multi-Sectoral Modeling Frameworks
  • Scenario Building and Analysis
  • Stakeholder Engagement Strategies

Who Should Attend:

Academics, researchers, policymakers, and stakeholders involved or interested in climate change mitigation efforts, modeling, and policy formulation are encouraged to participate.

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the advancement of climate policy in Pakistan and beyond. The workshop is being organized at a critical junction in Pakistan's national discourse in the climate change arena. The challenges posed by climate change to achieving a sustainable low-emission future call for a new generation of scientific modelling frameworks to support the formulation of post-2030 mid-century mitigation strategies. By engaging in collaborative discussions and knowledge-sharing activities, participants will play a crucial role in shaping the future of climate change mitigation efforts in the region.
