Ministerial-level Thematic Forums


Ministerial-level Thematic Forums will bring together key stakeholders virtually over five days, 21-25 June 2021, to mobilize actions as a major milestone on the road to the High-level Dialogue on Energy in September 2021.

Ministers from national governments and leaders from business, cities, civil society and youth organizations and other stakeholders will have the opportunity to showcase solutions and partnerships on each priority theme and present their Energy Compacts, setting out their voluntary commitments and actions.

A report detailing recommendations for action needed on each of the five priority themes will be officially launched at each Forum by the Technical Working Group co-lead organizations. Together these five reports will comprise a global roadmap for achieving affordable and clean energy for all by 2030, on the road to net-zero emissions by 2050.

SDG7 Action Zones will provide space for side events where Energy Compacts can be featured, bringing together interested partners.
