In 2021, the United Nations together with a broad coalition of partners puts a premium on Sustainable Development Goal 7 — “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.” This year, energy issues have a special place on the UN agenda as in September 2021 it will convene the High-Level Dialogue on Energy which will unite all state and non-state stakeholders to consolidate their efforts in achieving the 2030 Agenda, in particular SDG7, along with targeting net-zero emissions by 2050.
In preparations for the High-Level Dialogue on Energy and pursing to accelerate action for achieving the 2030 Agenda, UN-Energy & Sustainable Energy for All call for joint efforts by introducing Energy Compacts: voluntary multi-stakeholder commitments & actions in order to achieve SDG7 & the climate goals stipulated in the Paris Agreement.
As one of major and responsible grouping actors on the global energy landscape, the BRICS countries are deeply engaged in implementing the Agenda 2030 to ensure the sustainable future for the generations to come, especially when it concerns such crucial topics as energy & climate.
BRICS YEA leads preparations of the BRICS Youth Energy Compact to meaningfully engage the BRICS Youth into the Agenda 2030 and contribute to achievement of SDG7 by 2030.
