Building Speed  |  Reaching Scale  |  Closing the Gap
February 16 - 18, 2021  –  Kigali, Rwanda

Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) is proud to announce that our next Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) Forum will be hosted by Rwanda and take place in Kigali from 26 – 28 May 2020.

"I am looking forward to welcoming you at our SEforALL Forum in Kigali, Rwanda. The Forum is an opportunity to foster a global dialogue about the challenges and opportunities of achieving SDG7 by 2030, and it provides a space for voices from across the global sustainable energy movement to share successes and visions of the future," said Damilola Ogunbiyi, Incoming CEO and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All.

2020 marks a major political milestone in efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, including SDG7 on universal access to sustainable energy. It also begins the next commitment period under the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the moment when the world must dramatically raise its ambition on climate action.

"We are excited to host the 2020 global SEforALL Forum and look forward to welcoming entrepreneurs, community leaders, policy makers, financiers and investors to Kigali. Holding the global SEforALL Forum in Africa reaffirms the continent’s commitment to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 7. It will be also a chance to share experiences with the rest of the world and mobilize resources to turn ideas into reality,” said Vincent Biruta, Rwanda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The 2020 SEforALL Forum will be a major event at the start of the final decade to achieve SDG7, providing a global platform to mobilize resources, connect partners and showcase action to realize the promise of the sustainable energy revolution for everyone.

The 2020 Forum in Kigali will be:

  • The most dynamic and diverse convening of the movement since the establishment of the SDGs;
  • A space to take stock of progress and focus on what’s working, what isn’t and why;
  • A platform for mobilizing resources and launching new financial instruments that will close the energy access gap effectively and efficiently;
  • A forum for collaboration and a place for partnerships to showcase action;
  • A marketplace where entrepreneurs, community leaders, city leaders, policy makers, financiers and investors can connect.
