This workshop is organized by the UNECE in the framework of the 11th International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development and the Eighth session of the Group of Experts on Energy Efficiency. The Eleventh Forum is organized jointly by the United Nations Regional Commissions in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Development Programme, and other international organizations, and aims to explore how to help member States improve access to affordable and clean energy for all and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the carbon footprint of the energy sector. The Forum will look into ways for countries to reconcile the reality of fossil fuels’ share of the energy mix with the need to address climate change, achieve sustainable development, enhance integration of the energy markets, and facilitate the transition to a sustainable energy system.
