CCREEE implements, coordinates and supports regional activities in the scope of the following four outcome areas:
The centre complements and strengthens ongoing national/regional activities in the areas of policy and capacity development, knowledge management and awareness raising, as well as investment and business promotion. CCREEE will position itself as a regional RE&EE promotion agency rather than an implementer on micro- and grass-root levels. To maximize the local added value the execution of specific assignments or services is in many cases delegated to national institutions and/or the private sector.
The centre focues on activities which demonstrate high relevance for leveraging investments in RE&EE infrastructure, services, local businesses and industry. Investment and business promotion will be an important activity component of the centre but also a cross-cutting issue across the other outcome areas. To create a regional RE&EE market, it is crucial for CCREEE to stimulate as much as possible spill-over effects across outcome areas and national borders.
The Centre applies an interrelated short-term and long-term planning, implementation and monitoring framework. The centre will work on the basis of the CCREEE Business Plan which will provide a long-term planning and implementation framework for the first operational phase. The annual work plans, which are subject to approval by the Executive Board, provide a short-term planning framework which incorporates projects and activities to be executed by the Secretariat in a given year. The annual status reports monitor the implementation of the work plans and report on the achievements in the different project components.
