Asia Regional Capacity Building on Using Renewable Energy Resource Assessment Data and Geospatial Analysis
This factsheet provides an overview of the Asia Regional Capacity Building on Using Renewable Energy Resource Assessment Data and Geospatial Analysis program.
The United States Government’s Enhancing Capacity for Low Emission Development Strategies (EC-LEDS) initiative is launching a regional capacity building activity in Asia to support a community of practitioners in using tools and data to assess clean energy resources to more effectively develop and implement LEDS. Primary objectives of this activity include:
- Building capacity in participating countries to effectively develop and manage renewable energy resource data and to apply this data to address policy questions;
- Increasing exposure to spatial analysis methods in relevant ministries or research support institutes for use in planning; and
- Developing a regional community of practitioners with improved capacity to use state-of-the-art tools to support quantitative, analytical decision-making.
Highlighted on the factsheet is information on the regional capacity building initiative’s three main activities: 1) developing a GeoSpatial Toolkit, 2) a regional training workshop and 3) supporting a community of practice.
