A Memorandum of Understanding is signed between the National Statistics Office of Mongolia and JICA's project team on "Continuous Enhancement for conducting the National Greenhouse Gas Census Cycle by Strengthening the Capacity to conduct the Greenhouse gas census" for further cooperation. Within this framework of the project, a training on Methodology to compile Energy Balance table is organized to strengthen the capacity building of NSO staff. The training was led by Mr. Takeshi Enoki, project leader and Tomoki Takahashi, energy specialist.
During the meeting, both sides exchanged their views on the JICA’s support on the compilation of the Energy Balance of Mongolia, sharing the best experiences of Japan, setting up the activities to compile the Energy Balance and addressing challenges faced by NSO staff.
