Regional Initiative on Renewable Energy for Hindu Kush Himalayas

19 – 20 November 2019 |Kathmandu, Nepal

IRENA and ICIMOD are conducting a comprehensive scoping exercise to assess key economic value chains in the HKH Region from an energy perspective, so as to identify the gaps and the potential for on- and off-grid renewable energy solutions. The scoping exercise will also help in identifying the potential areas for action to develop the ecosystem for deploying renewable energy solutions.
In an effort to consolidate the draft actions identified through the scoping exercise, IRENA and ICIMOD are organizing a Consultative Workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal on 20 November 2019. Participants will include governmental agencies, development partners, international and regional organisations, renewable energy practitioners and developers from the region. The outcomes of this workshop will provide a basis for developing a Regional Action Plan for HKH region.
