Experts Recommend Steps for Integrated Energy Transition in Asia-Pacific

The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) convened an event on the side of the Ministerial Thematic Forums for the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy. The event reviewed lessons learned from Asia-Pacific to promote clean and affordable energy for all (SDG 7) and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Speakers presented recommendations for action, particularly with regard to adopting integrated approaches.

The side event titled, ‘Integrated approaches to boost SDG7 and climate-relevant SDG actions towards sustainability in the Asia-Pacific,’ took place on 21 June 2021, immediately prior to the opening of the Ministerial Thematic Forums for the High-level Dialogue on Energy (HLDE). Junichi Fujino, IGES, moderated the event.

Speakers reviewed the findings of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific’s (ESCAP) Asia and the Pacific SDG Progress Report 2021, which finds the region is likely to miss the 2030 targets on access to energy services and energy efficiency. It indicates that more investment and international cooperation is required. Speakers also presented the recommendations from the reports of the five Technical Working Groups that were developed as inputs to the HLDE.

Armida Salsiah Alsjahbana, ESCAP Executive Secretary and co-lead of the HLDE Technical Working Group on Energy Transition, noted that energy transition efforts in Asia-Pacific include broadening social protection and working to mend the “broken relationship with nature.”
