No one left behind in the global race to decarbonize: a focus on Africa
The Global Solar Council Virtual Forum is a two-day online event showcasing the enormous potential of solar power to bring about a clean, fair and sustainable future and enable quality employment in all regions of the world, from cities to rural communities.
Through a series of thematic and matchmaking sessions, International institutions, industry associations and other stakeholders of the solar sector cooperate to analyze the integrated actions needed to take up solar PV’s unique opportunity to power a green recovery, accelerate decarbonization trajectories and enable progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
The event has a special focus on Sub-Saharan Africa and the role solar power can play in addressing the issue of access to power, deploying clean energy at all scales, and providing a critical assist for more democratic development governance. This session is organised in cooperation with SolarPower Europe, and supported by GET.invest, a European programme which mobilises investments in decentralised renewable energy, supported by the European Union, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria.
