The training will focus on energy security and challenges to governance in light of the December 2015 Paris Agreement (COP21). Renowned international energy specialists from both governments and the private sector will tackle a host of issues including: the impact of climate change on energy security; transition to low-carbon economies; the volume of investment required to secure energy transition; how to meet energy efficiency targets - all of this in the context of a chronic low oil price environment.
The training offers:
- Four highly interactive learning modules over three days, including a hands-on workshop on the Energy Charter Treaty, delivered by high-level professionals.
- A one-of-a-kind, dynamic simulation scenario, mimicking negotiations on an international pipeline agreement, led by international specialists.
- A rich networking environment, where government meets industry, as well as NGOs and academics.
This session is organised in cooperation with the Research Center of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association, Department of International Relations and European Studies of the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University, Hungarian Regional Centre for Energy Policy Research and Centre for Eastern Studies with the financial support of the International Visegrad Fund.
