Eighth International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development

11 - 14 June 2017

Astana, Kazakhstan

Ministerial Conference and 8th International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development

The Eighth Forum will combine a ministerial meeting followed by a high-level plenary session with parallel workshops over four days. The Energy Ministerial Conference will kick-off the Eighth Forum on 11 June 2017 and follow the official opening of the EXPO 2017 "Future Energy" on 10 June 2017, which expects more than 5 million visitors over three months, more than 100 participating countries and international organizations and the private sector.

Ministers, high-level delegations and leading energy experts will explore how to drive change, the role of and need for regional cooperation and planning, and the imperative for nexus solutions as part of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In particular, the interplay between fossil fuels, energy efficiency, and renewable energy will be in the spotlight. At the closing of the conference, ministers and heads of delegations will adopt a joint declaration which reaffirms the importance of energy collaboration among countries for tackling common energy challenges and shaping a sustainable energy future for all.


The Eighth Forum and energy ministerial will offer countries choices on how to attain the energy-related Sustainable Development Goals in their national contexts. 

The Eighth Forum provides the opportunity to reflect on the agreements and activities to date and further pursue a common agenda towards meeting the challenge. The objective of the Eighth Forum is therefore to build on the previous outcomes and experiences and to agree on potential solutions at an energy ministerial at the outset of the Eighth Forum, as a major stepping stone in the history of this international fora process.

EXPO 2017 "Future Energy" seeks to address global energy related challenges and presents therefore a unique opportunity for ministers to jointly discuss immediate solutions and quick fixes to global energy related challenges.
