New guide out for public policy on energy efficiency
The Society for Sustainable Development Design (DOOR), based in Zagreb, stated that a guidebook, called ’How to Participate Efficiently’, has been published covering the topic of public policy referring to energy efficiency. The brochure has been created in cooperation with six civil society organizations who implement the schools for political studies in South-East Europe, within the framework of the Public Dialogue Initiative (PDI), which is supported by the GIZ Open Regional Fund for the South-East Europe-Energy Efficiency.
The document presents a concise digest of ideas, recommendations, methods and experiences of organizations active in public policy on energy efficiency. It is devised as a series of advice on how to incite and organize public dialogue with chapters directed at state administration, local authorities and civil society organizations.
DOOR assists local and state authorities in sustainable energy politics and solutions, with the involvement of the interested public. The non-governmental organization said it supports social and business initiatives and partnerships in the field, ones which could be a trigger for social, economic and ecological development, and poverty reduction.
