The High-level Dialogue on Energy, to be held in September 2021, represents the first global gathering on energy under the auspices of the United Nations General Assembly since 1981. It provides a historic opportunity to drive energy transformation in the first years of the SDG Decade of Action and support the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The High-level Dialogue on Energy will be structured around five overarching themes: (1) Energy access; (2) Energy transition. (3) Enabling SDGs through inclusive, just energy transitions; (4) Innovation, technology and data and (5) Finance and investment. More information about the overarching themes can be found here.
