Due to the current situation in the country the Ministry of Environment of Armenia and the OECD have decided to postpone the workshop until further notice. We hope to be able to welcome you at an alternative date in the near future.
The workshop on investment needs for climate action in Armenia will take place on 30 September 2020 in a virtual format through Zoom platform.
This workshop will provide opportunity for feedback on the OECD’s analysis and highlight further practical support needs which can be used as a basis for further work. It will facilitate discussions on the implications of the analysis as well.
Participants include representatives from ministries, think tanks, NGOs, international organisations and the private sector in the Republic of Armenia and the OECD.
You can register to the workshop here.
The workshop is funded under the International Climate Initiative supported by the German Environment Ministry. Armenian-English-Armenian translation is provided.
The OECD Secretariat has undertaken an assessment of investment needs for climate action in the Republic of Armenia (Armenia) up to 2030. The Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Armenia (Ministry of Environment) and the OECD jointly launched the work under the GREEN Action Task Force in January 2019. The analysis aims to provide an evidence base for policy reform discussion among Armenia’s stakeholders and for mobilising finance for climate objectives in line with the country’s national targets, for example under the Intended Nationally Determined Contribution communicated to the UNFCCC. Having even crude estimates of investment needs to reach Armenia’s climate targets not only helps fill gaps in knowledge. It can support Armenia in planning its investments more strategically, in developing capital raising plans and in providing visibility to investors on the pipeline of forthcoming investable projects.
