The Regional Secretariat for Latin America and
the Caribbean region of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership
(LAC REEEP RS) is carrying out a regional consultation for the
International Renewable Energy Conference (WIREC), to be held on March 4-6,
2008. The consultation seeks to help define the expectations of the
governments and RE/EE stakeholders in Latin America and the Caribbean region
with regard to the WIREC conference. The inputs received during the
consultation period will serve as feedback to the organizers of WIREC.
The LAC REEEP Regional Secretariat will
prepare a report based on the inputs received from the region's RE/EE
stakeholders. The report will be made available to the REEEP International
Secretariat and the WIREC Conference organizers. If you wish to participate in
this consultation, please fill out the questionnaire below.
