Seminar on Ensuring Access to Affordable, Reliable, Sustainable and Modern Energy for All

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
30 June - 01 July, 2016

Of the sustainable development challenges facing the world today, none is more cross-cutting and deeply embedded in our daily lives and livelihoods than energy. Energy is the life blood of our civilization. The well-being of our people and economy and the health of our environment depend on safe, clean, secure, sustainable and affordable energy.

The energy challenge is characterized by its poverty and environment dimensions. Today some 1.1 billion people lack access to electricity and some 2.9 billion people rely on unsustainable biomass for cooking and heating. At the same time, energy-related greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) contribute to climate change, accounting for almost 80% of GHG emissions in many economies.
