According to the bank document, based on the recommendations and lesson learned of previous RETAs, the proposed RETA is designed to:
(i) enhance the GMS countries' capacity in applying IRP with SEA in their PDPs;
(ii) improve regulations, policies, programs and/or targets for RE and EE as necessary and as validated through the IRP; and
(iii) support the cross-border interconnections as necessary and as validated through the IRP.
The RETA will particularly focus on Viet Nam as the country has greater potential for mitigating climate change impacts. The RETA outputs will be also disseminated through RPTCC meetings, which are organized twice a year. The TA activities will be closely coordinated with the GMS Environment Operations Center (EOC)'s Core Environment Program (CEP), which has provided assistance on the SEA for power development planning in Viet Nam.
