The UN Secretary-General is convening the High-level Dialogue on Energy at the summit level during the 76th session of the UN General Assembly in September 2021, in New York. This event was mandated by General Assembly resolution 74/225. It will be the first global gathering on energy under the auspices of the UN General Assembly since the UN Conference on New and Renewable Sources of Energy in 1981,
The High-level Dialogue on Energy seeks to promote the implementation of the energy-related goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and to raise ambition and accelerate action towards the achievement of the SDG 7 energy targets.
Preparations for the Dialogue will be organized around five Forums at a ministerial-level, one for each of five themes: the Energy Access Forum, the Energy Transitions Forum, the Forum on Energy Action to Advance other SDGs, the Forum on Capacity Building and Data, and the Forum on Finance and Investment, in support of SDG7 achievement.
