The “Regional Initiative for Promoting Small-Scale Renewable Energy Applications in Rural Areas of the Arab Region”, led by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) and funded by The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), constitutes an initiative to support the improvement of  the livelihoods of rural Arab communities by promoting investments in renewable energy (RE) applications focusing on environmentally adequate, affordable, and region specific small-scale renewable energy technologies. 

To this end, ESCWA is organizing the First Coordination Meeting of the Steering Committee for the “Regional Initiative for Promoting Small-Scale Renewable Energy Applications in rural areas of the Arab Region” to launch the project’s activities on the national and regional levels and identify the priorities, framework and responsibilities of the partners involved in this project. 

The First Coordination Meeting aims to bring together key implementing partners to discuss and coordinate the partnership and implementation process, the progress on the country visits and established partnerships in the four pilot countries: Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia, as well as the project’s key components, gender mainstreaming strategy, project sustainability and ownership aspects, the roles and responsibilities, project plan and next steps.
