The LEAP-IBC training will be held from 5th to 7th of September 2018, hosted by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the ME&F and UoN Institute for Climate Change and Adaptation (ICCA), with financial support from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, SNAP initiative (Supporting National Action and Planning of SLCPs). Participants are drawn from county and national governments, and other sector focused institutions in Kenya, and the CCAC focal points from Kenya, Chad, Central Africa Republic, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe. Training on LEAP-IBC will support air quality management, SLCP and GHG mitigation planning across priority sectors at multiple scales and at national and county government. This will be a first of a series of training workshops where every trainee will delve deeper into creating models using LEAP-IBC using own provided data and will link the participants training to specific activity. Thus, this is an opportunity to continuously improving utility of LEAP-IBC as well strengthen the community ofpractitioners and commits participants to a period of training of four months. In the Intervening months between the training workshops participants will be expected to participate in continuous exercises identified by themselves and the trainers to gain more experience.
Training Workshop objectives
• Learn how to use the LEAP-IBC tool to develop an emission inventory, baseline scenario projection and mitigation scenario analysis of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollutants.
• Understand how data available (e.g. from greenhouse gas inventory, energy balance, statistical authority) can be used to develop these analyses
• Determine future steps to development of the climate and air pollution emission inventory, and scenarios analysis in Kenya in a way that is coordinated between all relevant stakeholders.
• To understand how the development of a climate and air pollution emission inventory will be taken forward in the other countries that attend the training.

Training Workshop Outcome
• A clear work plan for the Kenya LEAP-IBC analysis, including what data will be identified and included in the dataset, the development of the baseline scenario and the mitigation scenarios that will be evaluated.
• A clear plan for the coordination of the development of the LEAP-IBC analysis across the relevant and interested stakeholders in Kenya should be developed.
• A clear work plan for each country for the development of the climate and air pollution emission inventory, including details on how i) the structure of the LEAP-IBC dataset should be set up to accommodate available data to estimate emissions from each source sector, and ii) the data that is required in order to complete the LEAP-IBC emission inventory.
