Description

There is an urgent need in the APEC region to enhance the resilience of energy infrastructure to reduce the impact from natural and man-made disasters, and climate change.  APEC economies face 70 per cent of all global natural disasters. Energy systems are further stressed by exploding growth and urbanization across the APEC region. This project supported a three-day workshop focusing on capacity-building training on the methodology for evaluating and addressing climate change risks to the power sector, with guidance on Integrated Resource and Resilience Planning, hydropower risk screening, and provided guidance for identifying and evaluating measures for addressing a range of climate risks across power sector components. The workshop was designed to help participants build capacity through presentations and interactive exercises, and share experiences and best practices from power sector practitioners engaged in climate resilient planning. This report describes the workshop proceedings and outcomes
