Description

In 2016, SCE made a number of decisions to strengthen its role to guide the fora. A new Fora
Assessment system, which SCE decided to replace the current Independent Assessment, is a significant example. SCE played critical roles in promoting cross-fora collaboration and facilitating business at the fora-level by approving concrete recommendations and decisions. A following up on the APEC Capacity Building Policy has been another area of priority.

This report attempts to capture some highlights of the activities at the Working Group/Task
Forces level. It includes a summary of activities undertaken by SCE fora supporting the existing
ECOTECH priorities based on the 2016 SCE Fora Report and other updates available. A brief overview on ECOTECH project funding has been also provided.
