Mandated by the G20 Summit in 2011, the G20 Leadership Program, which is targeted for senior government officials, aims to share international experiences among developing countries for sound policymaking. Hosted by the Government of Korea, the fifth delivery of the leadership program is being held at the Korea Development Institute in Seoul from 23 June to 30 July 2014.
Dr. Venkatachalam Anbumozhi, ERIA Energy Economist, participated in the program as an international resource person on 7-8 July. His presentation titled "New Energy Systems in the 21st Century" focused on sharing regional pursuits of sustainable development and innovating clean affordable energy for all through regional cooperation. About 30 senior government officials from 17 countries participated in the group discussions, sharing each other's experiences in helping overcome complex energy challenges through cooperation. They also developed a roadmap for implementing coordinated actions to increase the uptake of renewable energy sources and improve energy efficiency.
