Considering the fundamental role of energy in the post-2015 development agenda, the Committee on Sustainable Energy will continue its dialogue on “Energy for Sustainable Development”.  The agenda features a reality check on the energy transition, energy efficiency, renewable energy and fossil fuels in the context of the energy-related Sustainable Development Goals.

The prime objective of the 25th session of the Committee is to explore how to deliver on the national commitments in support of the Sustainable Development Goals and to discuss potential solutions to be agreed at an Energy Ministerial at the outset of the Eighth International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development in Astana, Kazakhstan, on 11 June 2017.

As an enabler for achievement of all of the Sustainable Development Goals, "sustainable" energy embraces the environmental, economic and social dimensions. To pursue diverse development pathways efficiently, countries need to understand the implications of what has been agreed both in their own national contexts and from others’ perspectives. The Committee will exchange views about market realities in light of continuing low oil and gas prices, diversification towards green economies and about decision-making in times of risk and uncertainty.

Please join the debate!
