The event was participated in by project managers, Network Facility, the EU Delegation, and representatives of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
Aside from being a venue to check on the progress of each of the 10 SWITCH Asia projects, the activity also served as an opportunity for project implementers to collaborate with policy makers and financial institution, towards the sustainability of the initiatives.
The SWITCH Asia Network Facility is implemented by the UNEP/Wuppertal Institute Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production and Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy. #
