IRENA’s 11th meeting of the Council
24-25 May 2016
Abu Dhabi
United Arab Emirates

The Council is one of the three principal organs of the Agency that are the Assembly, the Council and the Secretariat. IRENA’s Council convenes twice per year in order to facilitate consultations and cooperation among IRENA’s Members, as well as to consider the draft work programme, draft budget and reports on the progress of the implementation of the Work Programme and Budget. The Council is accountable to the Assembly and is composed of 21 Members who are elected by the Assembly on a rotating basis every two years. Council meetings normally last for two days and feature strategic discussions on the way forward of the Agency and future activities. On the sidelines of Council meetings, a number of thematic events are organised, providing a platform for participants to have focused discussions on particular projects of IRENA’s work.
