UNECE technical cooperation activities in the field of energy aim at providing advice and technical assistance, of an operational nature, to countries with economies in transition, and complement and reinforce the regular and extrabudgetary programmes in energy. The forms and methods of operational activities vary according to the needs of the recipient countries and the sub-regions, but invariably involve a combination of the following:

(a) the preparation and implementation of specific programmes, both issue-oriented and sub-regional in nature;

(b) the preparation of project proposals for funding by international organizations and donor countries;

(c) the development and preparation of substantive studies with participating countries relating to policy issues and energy strategies;

(d) assistance in transition of national economies and energy markets towards more sustainable energy production and use by increasing the market share of Renewable Energy Sources in the current energy mix;

(e) assisting governmental organizations in realization of the UN Framework Convention for Climate Change, in particular the Kyoto Protocol through its flexible mechanisms such as the Clean Development Mechanism and Joint Implementation;

(f) participation in the development and implementation of programmes for capacity and institutional building and training;

(g) the organization of workshops, seminars and other group meetings; consultative and advisory missions; and

(h) study tours. 

These activities are linked to UNECE's normative work, limited to those particular areas where the UNECE has recognized expertise, and aim at ensuring effective and efficient responses to the particular demands of UNECE member States. The work is focused mainly on the countries with economies in transition of Southeast and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. Most of the activities are developed and implemented in cooperation with other international organizations.
