image of Technical Report: Nordic Green to Scale for Countries

Nordic Green to Scale for countries zooms in on two regions: Kenya and Ethiopia in East Africa and the Baltic States, Poland and Ukraine in Europe. This report presents the emission reduction potential of 10 selected solutions for the African target countries. The study highlights the costs, savings and co-benefits of implementing the solutions as well as makes policy recommendations for capturing the potential. The technical analysis was conducted by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) Africa Centre in close collaboration with African organisations and networks on key environmental and development issues. The project was carried out by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, together with partners CICERO, CONCITO and Institute of Sustainability Studies at the University of Iceland. The project is part of the Nordic Council of Ministers' Prime Ministers’ Initiative Nordic Solutions.




This report presents results from the East African case studies under the Nordic Green to Scale 2 project. The analysis was undertaken by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers and Finnish Innovation Fund (Sitra). The project builds on two earlier phases implemented in 2015–2016.2 The overall aim of Green to Scale is to highlight the potential of existing low-carbon solutions in tackling the climate crisis at low cost while delivering co-benefits to people and the environment. The Nordic Green to Scale 2 project focuses on analysing country-specific barriers and providing targeted policy recommendation of overcoming the barriers.
