IRENA Africa Clean Energy Corridor High-Level Meeting

This ministerial meeting is being convened to consider an Action Agenda for the Africa Clean Energy Corridor, an initiative launched at the third session of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Assembly in January 2013, with the objective of developing clean, indigenous, cost-effective renewable power to support Africa's economic development. The Ministerial Round Table will discuss: benefits of the Africa Clean Energy Corridor; countries' views on the opportunity to move to a renewable energy future; key challenges that countries will face in making the transition; whether countries are fully equipped to use their renewables resource potential; and whether the concept of the Africa Clean Energy Corridor provides the necessary elements to enable renewable energy transition.
