The Assembly will be held under the overarching theme ‘World Energy Transition – The Global Stocktake’.
The IRENA Assembly brings together Heads of State/Government, Ministers and energy decision-makers among its Membership and States-in-Accession, as well as multilateral organisations, global stakeholders and private actors to take stock of operational plans and policies and highlight the concerted action undertaken to implement the energy transition across countries, regions, and the world.
The upcoming Assembly session will convene several Ministerial and High-level sessions to facilitate interaction between decision-makers on pressing issues related to the energy transition in the coming decade and beyond, and inform the future work of the Agency.
A number of Stakeholder Engagement events will also be organised at the margins of the 13th IRENA Assembly to bring specific perspectives on the energy transition from parliamentarians, youth and the private sector.
