Rethinking Our Energy Future: A White Paper on Renewable Energy for the 3GFLAC Regional Forum

Jun 2013
The Global Green Growth Forum (3GF) was initiated in 2011 with the aim of supporting a global transition to inclusive green growth through global alliance making and the promotion of public-private partnerships. This forum is a unique platform to catalyze partnerships that can rapidly bring to scale green growth opportunities bringing together governments from developed, developing and emerging economies along with the private sector. Realizing the potentials of green growth requires the effective mobilization at scale of financial, technological and human capital. This will only be possible if governments and the private sector collaborate at the local, national and the international levels to overcome barriers, and create the right incentives for actors to innovate and invest. This document is oriented towards stimulating the discussions, commitments and partnership building between governments and the private sector at the Forum. The commitments and insights derived from this first regional 3GF meeting will both benefit the LAC region and feed into the global 3GF meeting in Copenhagen on October 21-22, 2013.
