EEG Policy Workshop: South Asia Outcomes Report

On September 28th 2016, the Applied Research Programme on Energy and Economic Growth (EEG) held a policy engagement workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal. The workshop brought together more than 50 participants from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan. Senior energy policy-makers, researchers and representatives from the private sector, NGOs and donors in South Asia discussed the energy challenges facing the region, and considered policy relevant research questions that could address these constraints. To supplement the learnings from the workshop, the EEG Programme Directorate met separately with senior energy policymakers, researchers and private sector stakeholders.
