Objectives and contents of the course

Over the last decades, the interest of the international community for the multiple interconnections among energy, environment and society has widely increased. Today, the close link between energy and development is officially recognized. The Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Objectives provide some evidence: the world is increasingly interconnected and the social challenges are getting more and more complex and the call to multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder action is recognised. Moreover Gaol 7 identifies energy availability as a necessary precondition for human and social promotion, as well as an instrumental right to fight poverty, in line with the broad concept of “development as freedom” defined by Amartya Sen1. Nevertheless access to sufficient, affordable, efficient, reliable, safe and clean energy is not yet an opportunity for all. In developing countries the problem is critical, but evidence has also risen in emerging countries and, more recently, even in developed countries. Innovative solutions and strategies to match the economic growth with the multidimensional targets of sustainability, including environmental preservation and social inclusion, need to be developed. The course aims at providing a general overview of the various aspects of cooperation and development analyzed from a project, program and process oriented perspective. An appropriate planning methodology will be introduced where the final solution is designed identified and implemented to meet the local needs and exploit local resources and where technological choices (to be effective) depends on a number of factors like local economic, environmental and cultural condition. The energy sector will be the mainstream of the applications. The course aims to widen the vision of the students to this methodology by learning the history of cooperation and development models, by being introduced to the Project Cycle Management approach and tools and by understanding the many implications that energy may have on development both at global and local level.

Topic 1 History of cooperation and development models: From conflicts to cooperation. The phases of development cooperation: from the 50s to the present day. Colonialism and neo-colonialism. The theoretical foundations of cooperation and the evolution of development models. The Agenda 2030 and the 17 Development Goals. The Italian Law 125 on Cooperation and the New framework.

Topic 2 Global energy scenarios and a focus on Africa : The world energy situation in accordance with the forecasts of WB and IEA: OECD economies, emerging economies and critical economies. The forecast scenarios. The main socio-economic indicators. The concept of development and poverty (UNDP) and the current estimates. The energy indicators for development (EISD - IAEA and EID - UNDP). Comparisons and time-varying extensive and intensive indicators. An Energy focus on Africa

Topic 3 Comprehensive energy solution planning: strategies and appropriate technologies for access to energy: The size of the problem of access to energy and sustainable energy in DCs. The concept of Energy Ladder: energy and basic needs, access to energy services, energy and productive uses. The linkages between energy access, distribution and use of resources (Water Energy and Food Nexus). Social and environmental impacts of an economy based on traditional biomass energy: the need for modern fuels. Appropriate technologies: decentralized systems. Renewable based stand-alone solutions and integrated mini-grids / smart hybrid systems. Evaluation of the potential of local resources and models for analysis and estimation of demand in rural settings. Introduction to Decision support systems. Impact Assessement and tools for the evaluation

Topic 4 The Project Cycle Management: PCM of the European Commission, as an instrument of cooperation. From the initial planning to the final evaluation. The analysis of the problems and objectives. "Stakeholders" Analysis. The indicators for monitoring and evaluation: logical framework and the drafting of the business plan. Critical analysis of the PCM.

Topic 5 Beyond technology: Energy, rights, economic models and policies: Energy and Rights: Resources and the common good, Ethics and Resources, Resources, and human rights. Energy and business models: funding and entrepreneurial approaches to energy access. Energy and policies: enabling policies for the dissemination of appropriate solutions.


Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

 

 Organization of the course and exam details

Lectures are given ex cathedra, nevertheless a participatory approach is always envisaged. Part of the course is devoted to methodological project works about the project cycle management and application of the comprehensive energy solution planning . The project works are highly recommended and they can provide a rating (0-6) to be added to the evaluation of the written text. Indeed the examination is made by a written text that can be completed, at the discretion of the professor, by an oral exam.
