Regional: Supporting Participation in the Pacific Energy Summit

Sovereign Project | 46434-001

Summary

ADB is providing a regional small-scale capacity development technical assistance (R-S-PATA) to support the delivery of the Pacific Energy Summit (PES) to be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 26-28 March 2013.

The R-S-PATA will produce the following outputs: (i) renewable energy road maps, (ii) project briefs for renewable energy development, and (iii) support and coordination to PES participants during the event. ADB will prepare these outputs for the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, and Solomon Islands. Other development partners that are supporting the event will prepare additional road maps and project briefs for other Pacific island countries, so that coverage of the event is region-wide. Delivery of outputs should be submitted on or before mid March 2013.

Description

ADB is providing a regional small-scale capacity development technical assistance (R-S-PATA) to support the delivery of the Pacific Energy Summit (PES) to be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 26-28 March 2013.

The R-S-PATA will produce the following outputs: (i) renewable energy road maps, (ii) project briefs for renewable energy development, and (iii) support and coordination to PES participants during the event. ADB will prepare these outputs for the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, and Solomon Islands. Other development partners that are supporting the event will prepare additional road maps and project briefs for other Pacific island countries, so that coverage of the event is region-wide. Delivery of outputs should be submitted on or before mid March 2013.

The R-S-PATA will require the services of one international Energy Specialist and one national Project Coordinator/Research Assistant serving for 3 person-months each over the R-S-PATA duration of a total of 5 months.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The impact of the R-S-PATA will be the increased deployment of renewable energy technologies in the Pacific region within 5 years of the completion of the R-S-PATA. The outcome will be enhanced capacity of PIC governments in developing renewable energy targets and deploying sustainable generation of electricity.
