Sixth International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development

29 September - 2 October 2015

Yerevan, Armenia

The Sixth International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development will be held in Yerevan, Armenia, on 29 September - 2 October 2015. The Forum is organized by the Government of Armenia, the United Nations Regional Commissions, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Office in Armenia, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (C2E2), the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), and Habitat for Humanity International. The Forum is one of the important events of the UN Decade of Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) 2014-2024. Like the 2014 Forum in Hammamet, the Forum will emphasize attaining the three objectives of the SE4All Initiative of the UN Secretary-General by 2030: ensuring universal access to modern energy services, doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

At the Fifth Forum in Hammamet, the Executive Secretaries of the United Nations Regional Commissions signed a joint statement (the Hammamet Declaration), which received a widespread acclaim at the Forum and beyond. In their joint statement, they affirmed that the objectives of energy sustainability are attainable, and need to contradict more short-term considerations, if the world embarks on a determined, collective effort. The joint statement is a call for action to their respective member States, highlighting in particular three key components: a) Energy efficiency in most countries needs to improve more quickly; b) Renewable energy policies need to be redesigned; and c) Equitable access to modern energy services requires mobilizing adequate resources.

The Forum's High-Level session and plenary sessions on the first day will look into ways to make the Hammamet Declaration operational, with a possible designing of a scorecard for countries to report on their achievements. Parallel events on the second and third day will include: Workshop on Energy Efficiency for Sustainable Cities; Training Course on Business Planning for Renewable Energy Investments Projects; Round Table on Power Trade and Inter-grid Connectivity in Central Asia and the Caucasus; Workshop on Access to Energy in Remote Areas; Workshop on Industry Accelerator; Workshop on Status and Best Practices on Energy Efficiency; and Regional Forum for CTCN National Designated Entities. A site visit will be organized on the fourth day of the Forum.
