Information exchange on climate strategies and observatories between Sweden and Latvia

Energee-Watch

In August 2012, representatives of the Latvian Environmental Investment Funds will now visit Northern Sweden to learn more about how Swedish municipalities are working with Sustainable Energy Action Plans. They will also meet regional authorities and discuss with Nenet, Norrbotten Energy Agency, on energy observatories and climate strategies.

This is part of a new IEE project called SEAP-Plus, that aims at enhancing CoM results and impacts. Six pairs of regional partners have been created to facilitate direct transfer of knowledge and know-how from experienced partners to learning ones.

Main issues for the exchange are:

  • Best practice regional governance, methods, policies and measures
  • Best practice implementation of Sustainable Energy Action Plans in the municipalities of Lycksele, Piteå and Jokkmokk
  • Integrating new target groups into the CoM and SEAPs: Involving youth and indigenous people.
