ECPA Ministerial Dialogue Series
In preparation for the IV Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) Ministerial that will convene in Montego Bay, Jamaica, on February 27-28, 2020, the OAS will convene a series of Ministerial dialogues. The purpose of these events is to seek the input and advice of Permanent Missions, international development agencies, multilateral organizations, and the diplomatic corps at large headquartered in Washington as the delegations of the 34 OAS member States prepare to convene in Montego Bay. The first of this dialogue series will focus on electric mobility in the Americas in September.
The countries of Latin America and the Caribbean are making considerable strides to advance low carbon growth. Examples abound of governments implementing policies seeking to foster energy efficiency, and supply increased energy demand with clean sources such as wind, solar, small-scale hydro, biomass, or geothermal. Furthermore, electric mobility is rising as a national priority in several countries.
The countries of Latin America and the Caribbean are conscious of the significant opportunities for economic growth and resilience that de-carbonization can create through expanded renewable energy use, greater energy efficiency, and the transition toward electric mobility.
The Ministerial dialogue series will provide a space to discuss experiences, policy options, and technologies to ignite sustainable solutions in the Americas.
