African Energy Ministers Conference Proceedings Report Road to Durban: Promoting sustainable energy access for Africa

In the run up to the fall 2011 Durban Climate Change Conference (COP 17) and the summer 2012 Rio+ 20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development, two large international summits, PPIAF supported a conference “Road to Durban: Promoting Sustainable Energy Access for Africa,” which convened the energy ministers of the African continent. The PPIAF-funded conference aimed to promote the sharing of knowledge on technical and financial solutions for expanded access to low-carbon sources of energy, and facilitate the formation of consensus on priorities for supporting Africa’s low carbon, climate resilient energy development agenda, including in the context of climate change negotiations.
