Issue Strand: Sustainable Energy
Over fifty participants from various organisations from around the world actively participated in the working groups on action plans for sustainable energy. The outcomes of the Energy Workshops are attached. All of these outcomes currently sit as proposals, some of which have been finalised, whereas others are still in draft format, with contributions needed from specific participants in to agree the way forward.
Preparations: The Issue Paper (PDF / RTF *) was the basis of developments of joint action plans. It relates closely to recent international agreements (see resources). To support the building of close linkages with the outcomes of the Johannesburg Summit, we had also compiled the relevant extracts on energy from the Chair's Text for PrepComm IV (see PDF file). Our preparations included group meetings, conference calls and bilateral communication with the Issue Advisory Group and others. Many bilateral and small group meetings were held at PrepComms II - IV. Draft action plans were developed and we facilitated discussions among interested parties.
