The Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE), in collaboration with the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and Islamic Development Bank Group (IDBG), will present key developments in the Arab region’s transition towards a sustainable energy pathway. The event will take place Thursday, 17 November 2016 (13:30-14:30), in IDBG Pavilion, Green Zone.
The presentation will be based on the recently released 2016 edition of the Arab Future Energy Index (AFEX) Renewable Energy developed by RCREEE with support of UNDP Arab Climate Resilience Initiative. AFEX RE 2016 assesses the sustainable energy investment climate in 20 countries of the Arab region and is a key analytical benchmarking tool for gauging progress on national energy goals. It provides a practical analytical tool that is expected to play a critical role tracking progress on the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 7 on energy and the climate mitigation goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
