Workshop on strengthening national capacities in applying sustainable energy policies and practices, based on the recommendations of the environmental performance reviews

30 June 2021 9:00 - 12:00

The Environmental Performance Reviews (EPR) Programme has been mandated to assist UNECE member States in supporting the achievement and monitoring of environment-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the pan‐European region.  Since 2017 and based on the request from countries, several regional and subregional workshops have been organized, focusing on specific topics addressed in the EPRs to assist countries in their efforts to implement EPR recommendations. 
The UNECE Environment and Sustainable Energy Divisions organized a workshop in November 2017 with a view to strengthen the capacity of experts and government officials from Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan) and the Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia) in the energy sector to identify and apply best practices, measures and procedures of sustainable energy in order to adapt policy and practices that support transition to sustainable energy. 
Organized jointly by UNECE Environment Division and Sustainable Energy Division, this second workshop  taking place online on 30 June 2021 aims at reviewing and analyzing the recent EPR recommendations on energy and environment and sharing experiences by selected countries on the implementation of recommendations.  It will include presentations on tools and instruments to support sustainable energy. Finally, it will aim to identify key issues and common priorities for technical assistance; and discussing ways forward.
