About the Initiative
Consumer Unity & Trust Society (CUTS) has taken up the initiative to understand the current scenario of regional cooperation among Southern and Central Asian countries in energy sector and propose the way ahead to harmonise the regulatory mechanism within the region to encourage trade, investment and knowledge sharing for energy cooperation. The purpose is to achieve a consensus and build awareness among the government departments, ministries, businesses, civil society organisations and other organizations/agencies for regional energy integration.
As part of the initiative, CUTS is organising a series of conferences with support & partnership with relevant partners, such as Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), Sustainable Development Policy Initiative (SDPI), South Asia Watch on Trade, Economics & Environment (SWATEE) etc. with the aim to create a platform for dialogue among relevant stakeholders to achieve greater cooperation, coordination and integration for sharing of energy resources.
