10 Ways the Clean Energy Ministerial Is Helping Drive the World’s Clean Energy Revolution

If we’re going to solve the challenge of climate change, we need to make a rapid shift to clean energy. That’s why the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) was launched in 2010. At this year’s seventh annual Clean Energy Ministerial meeting, CEM7, energy ministers and business leaders from more than 25 countries will tackle a number of challenges, such as reaching the clean energy goals outlined in the COP21 Paris Climate Agreement. But the CEM is more than just a meeting. It’s also a collection of groundbreaking campaigns and initiatives that provide people around the world with the tools they need to join the clean energy revolution. This blog lists 10 ways that the CEM is advancing clean energy worldwide.

How West Africa Is Putting Women’s Interests on the Table

International Women’s Day, observed around the world on 8 March 2017, celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political empowerment and achievement of women.
