High Level Meeting on Energy and the Post-2015 Development Agenda

9 April 2013 | Oslo, Norway
Highlights for Tuesday, 9 April 2013
Daily web coverage: Introduction - 9 April
 

The High Level Meeting on Energy and the Post-2015 Development Agenda was held on 9 April 2013 in Oslo, Norway. It brought together ministers and representatives of international organizations, the public and private sectors, financial institutions, civil society and academia to examine potential global energy objectives for the post-2015 development agenda. It was hosted by the Government of Norway and co-hosted by the Governments of Mexico and Tanzania. The meeting was attended by over 175 people.

Participants took stock of the online and regional consultations on energy, and finalized a common vision to be set forth as a set of recommendations to be submitted to the UN Secretary-General’s High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

The meeting was opened by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, with participants engaging in discussions on how energy challenges can be addressed via the post-2015 development agenda, including by ensuring that: the roles of women are meaningfully addressed; youth and education play central roles; joint energy-related goals be developed in collaboration with other post-2015 consultations to ensure their multi-sectoral support; and the private sector is included as a key actor in the delivery of goals. The meeting closed with remarks from Patricia Espinosa, Member of the UN Secretary-General’s High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, and from Heikki Eidsvoll Holmås, Minister of International Development, Norway.

This meeting was one of eleven Global Thematic Consultations to inform the design of the post-2015 development agenda. IISD Reporting Services coverage of the other consultations can be found here.
