The ninth session of the Assembly of IRENA will bring together Heads of State, Ministers, government officials, and representatives from the private sector, civil society and other international organisations to reaffirm the global renewable energy agenda and make concrete steps to accelerate the global energy transition.
Two ministerial roundtables will take place during the Assembly, to discuss the role of renewables in achieving universal energy access and the transformative impact innovation is having in the renewable energy sector. A special evening event on “Gender in the Energy Transformation” will mark the launch of a new IRENA publication on the topic and feature an interactive discussion on the gender dimension of the energy transformation.
The Assembly takes place at the outset of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, which will include the Future Summit (formerly World Future Energy Summit – WFES).
