5th Annual Sustainable Energy for All Africa Workshop at the SEforALL Forum
More than 750 leaders from government, business, civil society and international organizations will gather from 2nd to 4th to May 2018 in Lisbon for the 4th SEforALL Forum with the title: “Leaving No One Behind”.
The Forum will examine the latest data on progress — or lack of — in achieving SDG7 goals. A highlight will be the launch of the 2018 Global Tracking Framework report, which benchmarks annual progress towards achieving universal access to modern energy services, doubling renewable energy and improving energy efficiency by 2030.
The SEforALL Africa Hub will hold the 5th Annual SEforALL Africa Workshop during the SEforALL Forum in Lisbon with a focus on laying out the essential elements to mobilize finance for a systematic implementation of the SEforALL agenda in Africa.
The workshop will provide a venue for country representatives, private sector, civil society and development partners to:
- Be informed about the progress of SEforALL Initiative and related country processes in Africa
- Share and discuss main lessons learned from the IP process and draw recommendations for a continuous improvement, up-dating and showcasing process for IPs, to ensure a systematic implementation of the IP pipelines
- Comment on the role of the SEforALL Africa Hub and of national SEforALL Secretariats in coordinating SEforALL processes and driving the implementation of IPs at national level to systematically achieve SEforALL targets
- Be informed about instruments of the African Development Bank (and others) to help closing the financing gap and facilitating the achievement of the SEforALL targets.
The discussion and inputs resulting from the 5th Annual SEforALL Africa Workshop will flow into the strategic work areas of the SEforALL Africa Hub and the National SEforALL Secretariats.
Participants will include representatives of SEforALL partner organizations, the SEforALL Partnership, SEforALL regional and thematic Hubs, as well as accelerators, regional organizations, representatives from African Countries and the SEforALL Focal Points, development partners, private sector, financiers, academia and research and civil society representatives
