Assessing the impacts of international Response Measures in Ghana
27 27+01:00 September 27+01:00 2021 @ 15:00 - 17:00
This webinar is part of the project “Reporting on the Impacts of Response Measures – a case study on Ghana”, jointly organised by ERCST and the Environmental Protection Agency of Ghana.
ERCST and the EPA in Ghana have been working together on identifying, measuring and analysing the impacts of the implementation of response measures in Ghana. To foster capacity building and stakeholder participation, virtual workshops are being organized at each stage of the development of the case study.
In previous steps of the project ERCST carried out an analysis of the Ghanaian economy to understand what the most vulnerable sectors to international mitigation policies are. As a result, 12 sectors were identified, including oil, fishing, tourism, aluminum and manganese. Afterwards, specific response measures were associated to each of the 12 vulnerable sectors, such as IMO, CORSIA and the EU CBAM.
At this stage of the project, a quantitative assessment of the impacts that the identified response measures could have on certain Ghanaian economic activities will be performed. The analysis will be conducted via a Computable General Equilibrium Analysis (CGE Model).
During this webinar, the approach and modelling will be presented and reactions from Ghanaian stakeholders will follow. Lastly, ERCST will moderate a roundtable discussion with the attendees with the aim of gathering feedback on the methodology, leveraging local knowledge.
