ESMAP is a key sponsor of the Iceland Geothermal Conference (IGC) 2018. A dedicated session on the World Bank/ESMAP’s Global Geothermal Development Plan (GGDP) has been organized in partnership with Iceland Geothermal and the Icelandic Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Significant progress has been made since the launch of the GGDP in Reykjavik in March 2013. The GGDP intends to showcase what has been achieved during a 2-hour session, and provide a platform for donors, multilateral financing institutions, government officials, industry experts, and practitioners to take stock of progress and exchange knowledge on different aspects of geothermal projects: from the role of governments to specific technical industry issues.
The session will tentatively include:
- GGDP Introduction, context, scope
- World Bank’s approach to reducing resource risk
- Country experiences
- Dominica (TBC)
- Gender and geothermal
- Closing – GoI
