Project Description

The proposed TA aims to improve energy security and mitigate climate change in the GMS through strengthened regional power cooperation, with an increased use of clean energies, knowledge sharing in GMS power development, and better policy and business environments for promoting renewable and efficient energies. The TA will assist the GMS countries in adopting specific climate-mitigation measures for the power interconnection projects; establish measurable targets and action plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions resulting from power sector development; adopt measures for renewable-energy and energy-efficiency improvements over time that can be monitored against a well-defined baseline; and to clearly define the public policy interventions under the action plans. These activities will all contribute to sustainable power sector development and climate change mitigation.
