Report on Certification Framework
Offering a certification in the context of the peer-to-peer learning programme PROSPECT offers added value for both participants and the project consortium. Participants will receive a reward for participating in the programme. The value of the certificate is further intended to exceed the scope of the project by not only acknowledging participation but by evaluating learning outcomes.
Report on Setting up Peer to Peer Powered Cities and Regions
The development of the learning program is the foundation of the PROSPECT project. This report provides the objectives and methodology, outputs delivered and implementation plan, lessons learned and conclusions in setting up a peer-to-peer learning program.
Launching and Monitoring the Peer to Peer Learning Programme
Monitoring guidelines for the success of the learning programme
Establishing a successful peer to peer learning programme is the main objective of PROSPECT. To ensure quality and timely reaction in constantly improving the program, we have set measurable targets, both tangible and intangible, for all our strategic and operational objectives, which focus on the learning programme.
Summary of the monitoring outcomes of the learning programme
Establishing a successful peer to peer learning programme is the main objective of PROSPECT. To ensure quality and timely reaction in constantly improving the programme, we have set measurable targets, both tangible and intangible, for all our strategic and operational objectives, which focus on the learning programme. Then, the specific objectives and appropriate targets were shaped into a performance framework and appropriate key performance indicators (KPIs) were developed for each.
Peer-Powered Cities and Regions: Success Stories from PROSPECT
For PROSPECT, we have selected cities and regions that planned to develop and launch sustainable energy and climate action projects using innovative schemes in their own local contexts. Specifically, we have focused on participants who, after engaging in peer to peer learning, have transformed these experiences to specific learning outcomes, namely cognitive change, relational change, skill development, action orientation, and wider capacities. This booklet is written for cities and regions interested in the learning journey of peer-powered cities and regions on the topic of innovative financing schemes for sustainable energy and climate action projects.
Results, impact and lessons learnt
This deliverable presents the main conclusions and lessons learnt during the implementation of PROSPECT, drawn from the monitoring results, as well as the potential impact of the project in terms of energy savings and GHG emission reduction.
Summary report on Peer Learning Agreements (Final)
This summary report on peer learning agreements outlines the final objective, scope, methodology, limitations, results, and future recommendations. The appendices show the list of signatories as well as copies of the final commitment statements.
Impact of the peer to peer initiative
