Global Energy Assessment: Challenges and Opportunities for Developing Countries

Former GEA Council Co-President, Ged Davis, will review the findings of the Global Energy Assessment, two years after its publication in 2012. He will focus on the possible consequences and policy recommendations with respect to developing countries.  

For example, universal access to modern forms of energy is a key priority on the global development agenda, and is considered a fundamental driver of economic and social development.  Without access to energy, guaranteed access to clean water, sanitation, education and business in developing countries would be near impossible. 

The GEA finds finds that the necessary technologies are available to enable universal access to electricity and cleaner cooking fuels by 2030; however, this will require innovative institutions and targeted policies.  Mr. Davis will touch upon this and other pertinent GEA findings with respect to developing countries.  

Registration for the event is still open.
