Known as the CoM SSA SEACAP Toolbox, this resource is developed by ICLEI Africa in partnership with Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and launched on 5 November 2020. This document provides an overview of the contents of the SEACAP Toolbox in order to allow local governments and partners to easily navigate the toolbox.
The CoM SSA SEACAP Toolbox compliments the existing SEACAP Guidebook and provides an easy-to-use step-by-step series of presentations for each of the three pillars of a SEACAP, namely Energy Access, Mitigation, and Adaptation. Please note that this Toolbox is regularly updated and a French version will be available early next year.
The CoM SSA SEACAP Toolbox
The CoM SSA SEACAP Toolbox is a hands-on tool designed to support local governments to implement the recommendations in the SEACAP guidebook. It is designed as is a series of slide presentations that includes the content for each SEACAP pillar, while also unpacking a number processes and methodologies for achieving the different SEACAP steps. Additionally, the CoM SSA SEACAP Toolbox includes a number of guided exercises that can be used when facilitating a training on the Toolbox. In this way, the CoM SSA SEACAP Toolbox provides an interactive guide to each step in developing a SEACAP. To assist those using the slide presentations, notes have been provided as comments on each slide that provide further detail on the slide contents, where necessary.
The CoM SSA SEACAP Toolbox is divided in to four modules, each including a number of chapters.
