UN Secretary-General’s 2014 Climate Summit

At the invitation of the UN Secretary-General, IRENA is spearheading the renewable energy effort at the Climate Summit, putting forward the Africa Clean Energy Corridor and SIDS Lighthouses initiatives and organising a high-level policy debate on the ‘rethinking’ needed for the energy transition.
