1.         Objectives       

 

To establish cross-country links between the project implementation in the three Asian countries by: (a) understanding the commonalities on approaching CDM issues; (b) identifying shared needs on technical assistance and support; and (3) sharing training activities, methods and materials to be developed in the project context.

 

The main objective is to assist the finalization of national work plans by sharing information and experiences and developing more concrete ideas. The work plan should specify each activity to be undertaken along with a generic work plan of the whole project and should also specify the timeframe and actor of each activity.
