The seminar was organised to promote the importance of renewable energy in climate change mitigation and to discuss challenges and opportunities to support contributions from the private sector in Mongolia. IGES shared global trends on renewable energy technology and policy development as well as the ongoing support from carbon markets. Through an open panel discussion, policymakers and representatives from private companies engaged in active dialogue on recommendations for renewable energy policies to strengthen and promote actions from the private sector.
