Agenda: Promoting Global Collaboration and Innovation to accelerate the Adoption of Renewable Energy for Sustainable Development and Climate Action.



Renewable energy encompasses a variety of sources such as solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal, and biomass energy, which are replenished naturally and have a lower environmental impact compared to fossil fuels.  It is essential in addressing the global challenges of climate change.
