|Regional conferences, Economics of
Greenhouse Gas Limitations
Victoria Falls, Africa
Quito, Latin America & Caribbean
Eger, Eastern Europe
As part of the final stage of the Project
"Economics of Greenhouse Gas Limitations", during May 1998 regional conferences
were held in Africa, Asia, Latin America & Caribbean and Eastern Europe.
The conferences served as fora for
presentation of the methodological framework, results and experience of the national
studies, and their relevance and replicability in the region. Experience from related
studies in other countries were presented as well as the results of the sub-regional
mitigation studies. The conference format was sufficiently broad in scope to allow
discussion of parallel activities carried out in other projects, with a view to
synthesising all relevant experience.
The regional workshops provided the basis for
outreach in terms of directly informing and supporting other countries in the region on
the methodological aspects and specific experiences obtained by the participating
countries, including national and regional mitigation collaboration possibilities.
