Transforming Commitments into Action: Delivering on the Outcomes of the High-Level Dialogue on Energy
The launch of the UN-Energy Plan of Action and the Energy Compact Action Network aimed to build on the 200 voluntary commitments made by countries, organizations, and businesses in September at the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy.
The first high-level meeting to tackle energy issues under the United Nations General Assembly in 40 years demonstrated broad interest in accelerating ambition towards the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7) on affordable and clean energy and the net-zero emissions by 2050 goal of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Immediately prior to the High-level Dialogue on Energy (HLDE), Energy Action Days brought together representatives of business, foundations, cities, youth and other segments of civil society to announce “Energy Compact” commitments.
The Ministerial Thematic Forums for the HLDE launched reports prepared by Technical Working Groups, each with detailed recommendations for action needed, on five thematic topics also explored during the week by multi-stakeholder dialogues and ministerial sessions
Actors from UN and international agencies, national governments, and business, academic, and civil society organizations came together to provide input on five themes (energy access; energy transition; enabling SDGs through inclusive, just energy transitions; innovation, technology and data; and finance and investment) to inform the upcoming High-level Dialogue on Energy that will be held under the auspices of the UN General Assembly.
