Mobilizing for affordable and clean energy for all, on the road to net-zero emissions

IIASA will participate with ministers and experts at the virtual UN Ministerial-level Thematic Forums to mobilize transformational energy actions ahead of the High-level UN Dialogue on Energy in September 2021.

These thematic forums will bring together ministers from national governments and leaders from business, cities, civil society and other key stakeholders over five days (virtually), to mobilize actions as a major milestone on the road to the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy.

The preparatory process began in Feb 2021, focusing on five themes: “energy access”, “energy transition”, “enabling SDGs through inclusive, just energy transitions”, “innovation, technology and data”, and “finance and investment”.  

IIASA Deputy Director Leena Srivastava and IIASA Emeritus Scholar Nebojsa Nakicenovic are both members of Technical Working Group 3, "Enabling SDGs through Inclusive, Just Energy Transitions”. A report detailing recommendations for action needed on this priority theme will be officially launched on the 24 June 2021. This report, along with the four other thematic reports will comprise a global roadmap for achieving affordable and clean energy for all by 2030, on the road to net-zero emissions by 2050. 

Srivistava and researchers from the IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment Program (ECE) will participate in a number of side events relating to climate change and reaching SDG7. 

This event will take place online, please register to attend.
