Dissemination and Training Workshop on Pollution Modeling

Vientiane, Lao PDR 3 to 5 August 2015

During 2014, CEP worked with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment’s Pollution Control Department to estimate provincial industrial emissions by applying the Industrial Pollution Projection System (IPPS).  

On 4 August, results of this work were shared at a dissemination workshop in Vientiane, Lao PDR involving 30 senior government officials from ministries including planning and investment, industry and commerce, and environment. Apart from raising awareness about the benefits of IPPS and results of its application, the event also aimed to identify opportunities to use the results in national planning processes.

Following the workshop, on 5 and 6 August, 10 technical government staff were trained on how to apply IPPS.

A report on the IPPS application in Lao PDR will soon be made available on the 'Capacity support for Pollution Modeling in Lao PDR activity homepage.
