Fossil Fuels to Renewable Energy

By Fundación Omar Dengo

San José, Costa Rica/ November 12~16, 2018 


The workshop was made up of a series of lectures, discussions and interactive sessions that examined different aspects of the FFRE transition process. Theory and practice presented by the facilitators were complemented by presentations of the country context by the participants. The topics covered were fossil fuel subsidies and their reform in the transport and energy sectors, stakeholders in the energy sector, energy and gender, policies for energy transition, energy and the Sustainable Development Goals, and environmental fiscal reform. Later sessions focussed on how to overcome obstacles and challenges to FFRE processes and gave participants the opportunity to work in groups in depth to develop specific policy solutions for their countries.
