CGE Hands-on Training Workshop on Mitigation Assessments
Seoul, Republic of Korea
26-30 September 2005

The global hands-on training workshop on mitigation assessments was held from 26 to 30 September 2005 in Seoul, Republic of Korea. Fifty-seven participants from 46 Parties and seven CGE members participated. Four trainers facilitated the workshop. Financial resources for the organization and development of training materials for this workshop were received from the Governments of Australia, Canada, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. As host to the workshop, the Government of the Republic of Korea, through the Korea Energy Economics Institute, also provided financial and excellent logistical support to the workshop.

The training workshop provided the participants with an overview of the concepts, structures, processes and steps in mitigation assessments. Four country case studies were also presented, highlighting the challenges and lessons learned in mitigation assessments, particularly in the process of training and retaining national experts. Two CGE members presented the Integrated Environmental Strategies (IES) programme of the United States Agency for International Development. IES engages developing countries in building support for integrated planning both to address local environmental concerns and to reduce associated global GHG emissions. Throughout the sessions, participants had the opportunity to discuss technical concerns relating to mitigation assessments.
