Date: September 11, 2015
Venue: Vientiane, Lao PDR
The 7th Hydropower Developers' Working Group Business Meeting and Business Seminar will meet on September 11, 2015 in Vientiane. Established by IFC and the Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Hydropower Developers’ Working Group is a platform to help companies channel their concerns to the government, tackle business challenges, and develop hydropower that meets environmental and social best practices. The working group is the first of its kind in the Mekong region and meets quarterly to discuss pressing issues in the hydropower sector.
Members are invited to a lunch seminar directly following the business meeting introducing OXFAM Australia’s Gender EIA toolkit. A presentation will review the basic steps and opportunities to include gender assessment into the project cycle, and provide opportunity for discussion on some of the tools and checklists.
