Report: 2nd thematic workshop & policy lab, Latvian country desk
The combined second Thematic Workshop and Policy Lab of the Latvian Stakeholder Desk was held on 16th February 2022. The purpose of the combined event was multifold:
- In the first part (Thematic Workshop) the event had took a closer look to the Good Practice Portfolio of RECs (COME RES Deliverable 5.2) by emphasising the diversity of the models for RECs. Afterwards the REC pilot projects ‘implementation practice in Latvia and the relevant lessons concluded had been presented. Thus, the Thematic Workshop served as an interface between COME RES identified good practices and actual REC development activities in Latvia and facilitated a dialogue on it.
- The second part of the event (Policy workhop) had dealt with the drivers and barriers for RECs development in Latvia, particularly the role of local municipalities and the ways in which municipalities might support and participate in the REC, had been discussed.
