EGM on Developing the APEF Energy Data & Policy Information Portal
This expert group meeting is directed at gathering feedback on the development of the APEF Data & Policy Information Portal. With a vision of a sustainable energy future, member States have requested the secretariat through the APEF 2013 outcomes to “facilitate the dissemination of information [and] the exchange of best practices,” and "to undertake a periodic review of the progress made." The APEF Data & Information Portal will respond to these mandates by offering centralized and user-friendly access to data and policy information, providing the foundation for research and analysis on regional energy and policy challenges and trends. Points drawn from this meeting’s dialogue will provide the secretariat with further direction for the portal’s development to ensure a highly relevant and well-designed knowledge tool.
