Title: Call for Papers - Conference on SDG 7 for SDG 8: Sustainable Energy and Livelihood

Deadline: 1st April 2019

About Conference:

The two day event will bring together stakeholders to discuss replicable models and processes that can scale sustainable energy, livelihood solutions and transform under-served communities.

Poverty and climate risk are the two most important issues that are leading to increase in disparities across geographies. These disparities can be bridged by clean energy-based productive solutions to achieve decent work and economic growth for all in a sustainable manner.

The key challenge of the poor populations across the world, is that of getting meaningful avenues for stable livelihoods. The situation is starker for the poor in the developing world because of the immaturity of critical components of the ecosystem like appropriate technology, affordable finance, energy access, market linkages etc. The world is moving at a fast pace in terms of technology but not the kind that would have a direct economic impact on the poor.

There is a big disconnect between the various advancements in the world and the livelihoods catering to the skill sets of the poor.

The conference would bring forward the importance of sustainable energy in developing livelihood interventions at the grassroots level, leading to inclusivity and democratization of wealth distribution. It hopes to bring to light some of the much-needed livelihood related opportunities, that are primarily poor centric, and the related challenges with appropriate solutions. Livelihoods, powered by sustainable energy, are diverse in nature. The sectors vary from agriculture to dairy to textiles and interventions would vary depending on the topography. Thus, new innovations in technologies, financial products and delivery models would have to be developed in order to truly eradicate poverty while being climate friendly.

The panels and workshops will focus on solutions and create an open platform where a diverse set of participants, across all stakeholders, could contribute and learn. Today, the world needs to step up for the poor and make sure that vulnerable communities are not economically left behind and do not suffer from the consequences of climate change. The conference aims to inspire numerous champions to replicate and scale the sustainable solutions in a decentralized manner thus making this world a little more equitable.
