More than 50 participants from 20 countries attended the Workshop and contributed to very active and fruitful discussions. Among the participants were political decision makers from national and regional governments, financing institutions, implementing organizations as well as a wide range of experts in the field of energy efficiency, climate policy, CDM/JI and NAMAs.

The Workshop offered opportunities for the participants to present their views and discuss various options available at the roundtable and networking forum sessions.
The Workshop re-emphasized the urgent need to adapt the CDM approach to the building sector. It was also pointed out by the participants that potential applications of and opportunities for NAMAs will have to be further clarified in the near future.
