The Energy Investment Risk Assessment (EIRA) is a publication of the Energy Charter Secretariat that evaluates specific risks affecting energy investment that can be mitigated through adjustments to policy, legal and regulatory frameworks. It aims to identify policy gaps, provide learning opportunities, and stimulate reforms which make the investment climate of countries more robust and reduce the risk of investor-State disputes.
Results for countries in the review are presented in the form of individual country risk profiles. Other types of investment risk such as commercial, technical and geopolitical, are not within the scope of the publication. In 2017 the first non-public edition of EIRA was developed. EIRA 2018, expected this fall, will be the first public edition of the Report. To date, more than 30 countries are participating in EIRA.
