Investors, Paris objectives & Sustainable Development Goals: From Concept to Implementation

Columbia University

As climate change’s effects are already visible, the COP21 Paris agreement to maintain global warming to well below 2°C by 2100 entails the need for over USD1 trillion per year by 2030 worldwide to finance the energy transition, while another $1.4tn by 2030 is needed in low-income countries alone to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For the first time in 2016, climate finance was added to the G20 Agenda in Hangzhou and at the heart of the Marrakech summit.

XVI World Water Congress - High-Level Panel: The Water-Energy-Food Nexus

Cancun, Mexico

This Panel of the world water congress will specifically focus on the Sustainable Development Goals related to Water, Energy, and Food (SDGs 2, 6, and 7). The main objectives of the Panel are to: demonstrate the extent of the interconnections between the water, energy, and food goals, explore possible tradeoffs for implementing the SDGs and identifying a holistic assessment criteria for multiple implementation plans at different scales, and ddiscuss ways among which the policy coherence and policy-science communication could be improved across sectors and across scales. The discussion in the Panel will start with challenges in securing adequate tools, data, modelling complexity, governance and financing, starting with the global perspective, and moving to the more local and national scales. It will build on this material by considering lessons learned from various partner institutions on the potential and risks of adopting the Water, Energy, and Food nexus as a platform for SDG implementation.

Green Revolution in Vietnam and Lessons Learned for the African Countries

For over the past 30 years of economic reforms (Doi moi), Vietnam has gained major achievement in agricultural development. Thanks to the liberalization policy, from a net food-imported country, Vietnam has become among the top exporters of many agricultural products such as rice, coffee, pepper, etc. Millions of people in the rural areas have been lifted out of chronicle poverty and hunger. The face of the rural areas has been progressively changed. Vietnam’s successful efforts in hunger eradication and poverty alleviation were highly appreciated by the donor community, including the development organizations such as the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and the United Nations Development Program.

How Sustainable Energy can drive Prosperity?

Marrakech , Morocco

The COP21 has put a great emphasis on the need for mitigation and foremost adaptation to climate change. Next to the political commitment of all countries to reduce carbon emissions, an aspect may have been neglected: the role of energy for prosperity. All countries, among which developing and emerging countries, are engaged in implementing the production and use of sustainable energy. Empirical research suggests that energy is a crucial input for economic prosperity, making the transition to low-carbon energy in developing countries a crucial issue.

Decarbonizing Electricity Systems: Progress Made and Challenges Ahead

Marrakech , Morocco

Climate goals agreed in Paris at COP21 can only be reached if a strong focus is put on the promotion of low-carbon electricity sources. Electricity generation is already the largest contributor to energy-related CO2 emissions and global demand for electricity is set to increase by another 40% to 2030. Despite encouraging signs such as record investment in renewables last year and falling costs for key technologies such as storage, the road to full decarbonization of electricity systems is still long and full of challenges.

Low Carbon Renewable Energy: Lessons from MENA and Latin America Regions

Marrakech , Morocco

The success of the Paris Agreement is dependent on both the effective implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions, and the increasing ambition of contributions in line with the need for decarbonization of the global economy. Toward this end, countries of the Latin American and Middle East and North African regions have achieved significant deployment of renewable energy, and have ambitious goals for additional deployment. Such achievements have provided these countries with experience in the large-scale deployment of renewable energy. This experience can inform the pathways forward and implementation approaches being adopted as these countries pursue their ambitious goals for additional deployment. Sharing this experience is of great importance as countries continue to look to renewable energy as a means of achieving the necessary decarbonization of energy systems.
