MACEDONIAN SECTION

Macedonian section of the SDEWES Centre (SDEWES-Skopje) gathers professionals and scientists from broad range of disciplines of sustainable development of energy, water and environment systems in order to provide scientific support for wise policy-making in the following challenging topics:


  • Climate Change (GHG emissions inventories and projections, mitigation, reduction/limitation targets)
  • Energy (planning, policies, targets)
  • Sustainable development ( planning, cross-cutting, metrics and indices, potentials, models, costs and benefits)
  • Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS)
  • Green economy and better governance

These topics will be addressed through carefully planned and well-balanced portfolio of activities, including:


  • Modelling work and integrated assessments in order to provide solid base for well - informed and needs-reflective policy -making
  • Capacity building/ trainings and organization of conferences and targeted workshops in order to afford skilful analysts and modellers and knowledgeable politicians
  • Support to stakeholders’ engagement and social marketing in order to facilitate participatory approach in decision-making and behavioural changes of the population.

In addition, acknowledging that regional coordination is the key for providing feasible solutions of the common challenges and problems and gaining synergy effects, the activities of SDEWES-Skopje could be extended at regional level including the other EU candidate and potential candidate countries, as well as EU neighbourhood countries.
