Integrated approach for zero emission for urban development planning

SECTOR : , Public




project description

The project aimed at contributing to the abatement of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by removing barriers to the implementation of Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) projects in Algeria. The project intends to take the opportunity of the Boughzoul’s new town development to spread the adoption of best practices in the energy and environment sectors, thus leapfrogging over more environmentally detrimental stages of urban development.

The project goal was to develop and implement relevant tools within a sustainable urban framework to avoid GHG emissions in the housing, energy, services, and transport sectors, and promote business opportunities for private entrepreneurs in the commercial and industrial sectors that aim at zero GHG emissions.

Econoler was assigned by the UNEP to lead the development of the UNEP/Global Environment Facility (GEF) Full-Size Project (FSP) document and associated documentation, and be responsible for its delivery.


The specific tasks conducted by Econoler in the framework of the project were to:

  • Conduct the stakeholder consultations.
  • Conduct the logical framework analysis and project design.
  • Prepare the Incremental Cost Analysis (ICA) and cost-effectiveness analysis between the baseline scenario and the GEF scenario.
  • Prepare a costed Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting plan for input in the FSP document
  • Draft and finalize the FSP document.
