Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) is pleased to have joined the seventh Asia Clean Energy Forum, held last June 4 to 8 at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) Headquarters in Manila, Philippines, along with more than 800 stakeholders from 55 countries.
The event was hosted with the overarching theme “Accelerating Low-Carbon Energy for All”. It served as a unique platform for dialogue between private, public and government stakeholders on the implementation and development of Clean Energy programs in Asia. Furthermore, it provided the attendees with updates on existing clean energy initiatives and on the state and availability of clean energy funding facilities.
The weeklong program was highlighted by sessions led by distinguished panelists, such as Haruhiko Kuroda of the ADB, Cliff Polycarp of the World Resources Institute, and Mary Ann Lucille Sering, Climate Change Commission of the Philippines, who discussed such pressing topics as “Financing Sustainability and Enabling Profitability”, “Clean Energy Access in South Asia” or “Clean Cooking Solutions for the Poor”.
ASSIST was represented by Managing Director Sreeni Narayanan, Partnership and Network Management Director Kamesh Ganeson and Group Associate Mahnaz Zanganeh.#
