CEADIR March 2017 workshop.

Enabling Private Sector Clean Energy Investment in Southeast and South Asia

By Marketlinks Team

The USAID Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment and Resilience (CEADIR) activity designed and implemented a regional activity to accelerate CE private sector investment aligned with national climate change commitments (e.g., Nationally Determined Contributions or NDCs) and CE policy objectives in the target countries of India, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. CEADIR analyzed the NDCs and associated energy plans in each country, as well as the private sector CE investment commitments, to identify the greatest overlapping priorities between governments and the private sector.

Based on this analysis, CEADIR brought together 87 executives from leading U.S., Asian, and European corporations; government officials from India, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, and the U.S.; and donors and development partners to discuss emerging strategies and near-term opportunities to achieve clean energy goals at the Enabling Private Sector Clean Energy Investment in Southeast and South Asia meeting (March 27-28, 2017, in Bangkok, Thailand).

A deep dive workshop on “Enabling Private Sector Clean Energy Investment in Southeast and South Asia: Recommendations from Corporations and Governments” was held on June 5, 2017 as a pre-event to the Asia Clean Energy Forum 2017 in Manila, Philippines. The workshop engaged 167 participants from 25 countries. It highlighted recommendations and insights from private sector leaders on regional and country-specific actions that governments can take to accelerate investment in CE solutions in the region. It also showcased strategies and approaches of corporations, governments, utilities, investors, and development partners.

This blog is part of the Benefits of Climate Risk Management blog series that aims to provide evidence-based deep dives into USAID case studies. A USAID-funded Cambodia fisheries project outperformed productivity goals after incorporating climate-sensitive design, including planning for increased risk of drought and extreme heat events.
In December 2019, Typhoon Kammuri flooded parts of Legazpi City, one of the biggest natural hazard hotspots in the country. Earlier that year, USAID had helped the local water district develop an emergency preparedness plan for maintaining and restoring water services when disasters strike.
