This event will take place on February 6 - 10 February, 2017 in Kobe, Japan. This is a followup to the first "Training Programme to Support Renewable Energy Deployment in Asia-Pacific Island Nations" that took place in February 2016. This event is one of several co-organized by Japan's Ministry of Environment and IRENA.
The workshop is an opportunity for government officials from island nations in the Asia-Pacific to
learn from experts and government officials within and outside of Japan, regarding effective
policies for the deployment of renewable energy, best practices regarding the application of these
policies, and financing schemes.
Participants will be asked to discuss current progress regarding
their energy transition, and through this training programme, the capacity for renewable energy
deployment in small island developing states (SIDs) is expected to be enhanced, and steps towards improved energy access and
climate change mitigation in these islands are expected to be taken.
Participants will also take part in site visits to renewable energy facilities in Awaji island or
the Kobe city area.
