The IRENA Legislators Forum brings together a growing network of parliamentarians with an interest in accelerating renewable energy uptake. If you are interested in participating to the Legislators Forum or joining our network, please send an email to

The event, held in conjunction with the annual Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), presents a unique opportunity for legislators from all over the world to engage with experts and share best practices on all aspects of the transition to renewable energy.

Forum participants are encouraged to engage with other key stakeholders, including representatives from the private sector. Such engagement aims to boost public-private dialogue, both on opportunities for investment and barriers encountered in fast-growing renewable energy markets.

Along with the various sessions on the agenda, targeted meetings with IRENA experts and other legislators allow for more specific discussions on regional trends, challenges and opportunities.
