Save the Date: Vienna Energy Forum 2017 from 9-12 May 2017

Mark your calendars for the Vienna Energy Forum 2017 in Vienna, Austria from 9 - 12 May 2017, and prepare to engage in a dynamic and critical debate that will shape the future energy landscape.

The next Vienna Energy Forum (VEF) will be all about “Sustainable energy for the implementation of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement”. The VEF 2017 will highlight the multiplier effects of integrated approaches for sustainable development at the national, regional and global levels. The Forum will also accentuate the potentials of the sustainable energy nexus - linking energy to water, food and health - as well as innovation as a global driver for accelerated sustainable growth.

Achieving sustainable energy for all whilst realising the 2030 Development Agenda and implementing the Paris Climate Agreement are amongst the greatest challenges of our time. The VEF 2017 will address the linkages among key SDGs and their contribution to the 2030 Agenda, and will emphasize the crucial role of innovation to drive sustainable development while safeguarding the environment (source: UNIDO.org).
