Open source Nexus modelling tools for Planning Sustainable Energy Transition in Africa ONEPlanET
ONEPlanET project aims at empowering African policymakers, research & academia, investors and citizens with the necessary tools and know-how to increase clean energy generation and sustainable use of resources while reducing inequalities and cultural/socio-economic gaps.
- ONEPlanET will co-design and test a Toolkit, built upon existing WEF Nexus models and methodologies, that allows to simulate scenarios optimizing existing resources with the most appropriate policies considering social, climate, economic and biophysical constraints.
- In addition, a Knowledge Hub including a set of capacity-building materials and knowledge exchange activities will also be developed.
- ONEPlanET will undertake a participatory approach to building local communities in three African case studies: Songwe (Malawi/Tanzania), Inkomati-Usuthu area (South Africa) and Niger (Nigeria) river basins.
The project is implemented by 11 partners (7 in Europe, 4 in Africa). Learn more.
