Save the date! Energy Democracy, Just and Equitable Transition and Realizing the 2030 Agenda

21. Februar 2018 - 10:08

The WMG Asia Organizing Partner Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law & Development (APWLD) will hold this amazing side event on Energy Democracy, Just and Equitable Transition and Realizing the 2030 Agenda, during the Global SDG 7 Conference on Energy, at UN ESCAP, in Bangkok, on the 21st Februar 2018. Joins us!

A vital part of realising SDG 7 is the necessary transition to renewable, clean energy worldwide. This transition needs to be just and equitable, and should come with a transformation, not just in the source of energy but the purpose, distribution and control over energy, including principles of energy democracy. Electrification has commonly been associated with mega-energy projects and extractive industries that do not deliver to rural communities and adversely impact many. As countries phase out the use of fossil fuels, the price of solar energy is becoming lower than coal-based electricity, meaning this is the moment to build a new gender-just renewable energy sector focused on the 1.2 billion people without energy. In this side event, speakers from different countries in the Asia Pacific region talk about how gender-responsive structuring for both the delivery of electricity and the industry itself has the capacity to change lives in developing countries, remote areas, and small island states, especially for women and girls.
