The Energy Investment Risk Assessment (EIRA) is a publication of the Energy Charter Secretariat that evaluates specific risks affecting energy investment that can be mitigated through adjustments to policy, legal and regulatory frameworks. EIRA is an instrument primarily targeted at governmental decision-makers. It aims to identify policy gaps, provide learning opportunities, and stimulate reforms which make the investment climate of countries more robust and reduce the risk of investor-State disputes. EIRA 2018, the first public edition of the Report, was launched on 3 October 2018. Secretary General of the Energy Charter Secretariat Dr. Urban Rusnák will present the results, after which the floor will be open for discussion.
The side event is organized under the sole responsibility of the above-mentioned organizer. The UNCTAD secretariat is not responsible for the content of the discussions or for the material provided during the event.
