The three-day global forum will gather leaders from governments, civil society, international organizations and the private sector to debate key issues surrounding energy for development today.
The forum will reflect on how to strengthen and advance Sustainable Development Goal #7 and its nexus with other development goals, and provide action-oriented objectives across sectors.
The SDG 7 calls for ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential.
Sustainable energy is opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet.
It aims to ensure universal access to modern energy services, improve efficiency and increase use of renewable sources.
