The Asia LEDS Partnership and the Energy Working Group (EWG) of the Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP) are co-hosting a webinar on sustainable energy programs in Asia. The webinar offers both an overview of recent developments in clean energy policies, programs, and targets across Asia and an in-depth case study on Thailand's experience in creating an innovative, climate-compatible energy development approach. The presentation details the mechanisms that Thailand has employed to expand sustainable energy solutions. It also provides an opportunity to learn from the experience of a regional leader, including how Thailand overcame challenges in integrating smart energy policies into its overall development agenda.
