JODI Intersecretariat Meeting

Support JODI

13-15 July 2016

Vienna, Austria

The IEF chaired an Inter Secretariat Meeting of JODI partner organisations including APECEurostatIEAIEF,  and OPEC in Vienna on 13-15 July 2016. 

The meeting, hosted by OPEC at their Headquarters, focused on reviewing progress and action plans in regard to the following:

  • Participation Assessment of the JODI-Oil and JODI-Gas World Databases
  • The way forward on proposals to enhance the visibility of JODI and the pre-conditions to allow JODI to appear on data re-distributor agency platforms
  • G20 Ministers’ feedback on JODI and data transparency
  • The way forward on improving coal data transparency
  • Capacity-building workshops and user seminars: past and upcoming in 2016 and 2017
  • Plans for a JODI Conference in 2017
  • Preparations for the upcoming 15th IEF Ministerial meeting (Algiers) 27-28 September 2016
  • Preparations for the biennial meeting of Heads of JODI Partner Organisations (Algiers) on September 26
  • Update on new JODI website functionality

JBC Energy also participated in a special session of the meeting during which they delivered a presentation, exchanged views with partner organisations on the use of JODI data, and suggested potential improvements.

The Energy Community attended part of the meeting and delivered a briefing on the progress they are making in regard to helping to expand the depth and reach of JODI by encouraging some of their South European member countries to engage with the Initiative in the near future.

Partners expressed support for ongoing efforts to hold the next JODI Workshop for the CIS & MENA regions in Moscow later this year. They further endorsed the proposal for a subsequent workshop to target the African region during 2017.

It was further agreed that the nascent JODI-User Seminar series should be developed in line with the established model, and delivered as suitable opportunities arise. Partners also agreed to hold a JODI conference in 2017 to maintain the Initiative’s current excellent momentum, and to further benefit from discussions with the JODI –user community.

Partners further agreed on a set of actions to improve coal data transparency, including the synergising of the existing coal data collection efforts of those partners that already collect some form of coal data.

On the important subject of formalising and encouraging the broad dissemination of JODI data via the electronic platforms of data re-distributor agencies, Partners arrived at an agreement in principle on the assumption that such redistributors agree to meet a range of pre-conditions which are in the process of finalisation.
