Background

High economic growth in Asia and the Pacific has spurred high demand for energy. Developing countries in the region, however, have been suffering severe energy shortages and weakened energy industries. To tackle these problems and sustain economic development, systematic sustainable energy policies and energy-efficient industries must be developed. Green energy is increasingly popular. Many countries in Asia and the Pacific have initiated policies to make solar, wind, geothermal, and hydropower energy sources marketable. It is therefore timely and opportune to expand the capacity of Asia’s policy makers to deal with these issues.

Objectives

To promote discussion and share policy insights among government officials and experts to build capacity for understanding key issues related to green energy and the green industry.

Participants

Government officials from Cambodia and Viet Nam; international experts; and representatives from multilateral development banks, the private sector, and academia involved in developing green energy and technology.

Participant responsibilities

Actively join discussions and share views and experiences.

  • Better knowledge and enhanced capacity of developing countries’ policy makers to understand aspects of sustainable energy
