|| 2020 marks a major political milestone in efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, including SDG7 on universal access to sustainable energy. It also marks the beginning of the next commitment period under the Paris Climate Agreement and the moment where the world must raise its ambition on climate action.
The 2020 SEforALL Forum will be a major event at the start of the final decade to achieve SDG7, providing a global platform to mobilize resources, connect partners and showcase action to realize the promise of the sustainable energy revolution for everyone.
“We are excited that the next global SEforALL Forum will be hosted by Rwanda and take place on African soil,” said SEforALL’s CEO Rachel Kyte. “While Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the furthest to go in ensuring access to reliable, affordable and clean energy, it is also the region where the urgent needs of people and promise of the renewable energy revolution offer the most exciting opportunities for invention and breakthroughs. If we are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and raise ambition for climate action, all roads take us to Africa and solutions found in Africa can lead the rest of the world. What better place to embark upon the final decade of effort to meet SDG7 and the other goals that sustainable energy supports.”
The 2020 Forum in Kigali will be:
-The most dynamic and diverse convening of the movement since the establishment of the SDGs.
-A space to take stock of progress and focus on what’s working, what isn’t and why
-A platform for mobilizing resources and launching new financial instruments that will close the energy access gap effectively and efficiently
-A forum for collaboration and a place for partnerships to showcase action
-A marketplace where entrepreneurs, community leaders, city leaders, policy makers, financiers and investors can connect
