When: 2004

Where: Ecuador, Nicaragua

What: Strengthening Institutional Capacities

Together with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), we organized and delivered two workshops on power sector development and the role Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) can play. This joint capacity-building program was designed to promote a high level of interaction between host country experts and experts from both organisations on how they can effectively participate in the CDM process by undertaking electricity sector projects consistent with their countries’ own sustainable development goals.

The workshops were held in Managua, Nicaragua on September 23-24, 2004 and in Guayaquil, Ecuador on September 28-29, 2004, bringing together a total of over 100 participants from government ministries and agencies, regulators, electricity companies and project developers, as well as from financing institutions. Experts from GSEP and UNDESA shared their knowledge and experience on CDM and project development, focusing on investment and project cycle issues under CDM with concrete case studies and examples. At the end of the workshops, participants expressed their satisfaction of learning about the CDM process and how it could tie to their electricity sector development.
