This seminar is part of the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI). It is the 7th event of a series sponsored by the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA).

It is the objective of the seminar to:

  • discuss and develop concrete projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,
  • identify the economic potential of climate change policies,
  • promote understanding of the initial negotiations for a future climate change regime,
  • facilitate the sharing of experiences and ideas between experts from the Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, the former Soviet Union and Mongolia as well as selected OECD countries concerning the economic potential and benefits of climate change policies.

The seminar will bring together about 60 key persons from politics, business, non-governmental organisations, research institutes and think tanks from Central and Eastern European Countries, the former Soviet Union and Mongolia as well as OECD countries. Participants will be given the opportunity to discuss and develop concrete projects in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They are encouraged to present first project ideas at, or before the seminar. Participants will also meet experts from OECD countries to share their experiences and ideas concerning the economic potential and benefits of climate change policies. The seminar language is English.

CTI is a multilateral initiative, operating as an Implementing Agreement under the International Energy Agency (IEA). The CTI was established at the first Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1995 by 23 IEA / OECD Member Countries and the European Commission, and gained the status as an IEA Implementing Agreement in 2003. CTI's mission is to bring countries together to foster international co-operation in the accelerated development and diffusion of climate-friendly and environmentally sound technologies and practices. The promotion of technology transfer under the Kyoto Protocol as incorporated in the Marrakech Accords is at the core of CTI's work.



This seminar is organised by Ecologic on behalf of the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA). This seminar is supported by funds of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI).
