Many developing countries are giving cities more #autonomy in decision and #policymaking; and more freedom in developing their local policy agendas. This, combined with the fact that most of the infrastructure in developing countries is yet to be built, presents an immense opportunity for taking an integrated and sustainable approach to #urbanenergy and related investments.

This workshop will bring together representatives of national and city governments, business and academic society to discuss good practices, trends and recent developments on sustainable energy in cities.
