meetMED Workshop on Monitoring EE and RE Indicators in the Mediterranean Region
The meetMED Workshop on Monitoring EE and RE Indicators in the Mediterranean will take place on 20 – 22 March 2019 in Beirut, Lebanon.
Following-up the results of the MED-IEE1 project, which compiled reliable data about EE indicators used in Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon and Tunisia between 1990 and 2010, the Workshop will now update the collected data according to the new specific national needs by looking into the period 2012- 2018.
In the framework of the Paris Agreement, all countries need to implement stricter EE policies and to measure more accurately their impacts on climate. As others, the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Countries have elaborated National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) indicating sector-specific measures to be implemented at the national level.
Monitoring the NEEAPs requires the definition of reliable indicators to assess the impact of policies, measure progress and identify possible next steps.
For this reason, this Workshop will aim specifically at:
- Introducing meetMED objectives and expected outputs;
- Creating a task force on EE indicators;
- Creating a task force to using EE indicators databases;
- Identifying specific support needs in each country, if necessary;
- Exchanging best practices on monitoring tools.
The event is by invitation only.
