The long-term strategy on joint capacity building and know-how transfer aims to provide a capacity building tool kit, focused on human resources capacity, for the international solar and wind energy community.

The aims of this document are:

  • To provide an overview of past and present global capacity building initiatives / strategies / projects, in the renewable energy sector and other sectors
  • To identify success factors / best practices of capacity building initiatives / strategies / projects
  • To identify potential cooperation opportunities / synergies between MEF and other existing renewable energy and capacity building initiatives / programs
  • To formulate recommendations for a MEF long-term strategy on joint capacity building and know-how transfer, based on the outcomes of the capacity building initiative analysis and best practices identified
  • To give an overview over financing options for capacity building and make recommendations to MEF with regards to tapping financing sources
