Fireside chat: Islands, Nature And Renewable Energy

07 Dec 2023

This session will see the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law present the interim results of a project co-produced with the Government of Vanuatu. The project maps the regulatory frameworks of Vanuatu related to the promotion of renewables and sets out policy recommendations aimed at increasing renewable energy penetration in Vanuatu hence supporting the island nation’s climate change ambitions. The event will further open up a discussion on how boosting renewables within island nations and island communities can be done in a way that does not undermine nature, both on land and in the seas.

  • What are the key insights into the key findings and policy recommendations from the project mapping?
  • How do these recommendations align with the nation's climate change goals?
  • How can the promotion of renewable energy be achieved in a manner that simultaneously supports climate action and conservation of nature?
  • In what ways can the lessons and experiences from Vanuatu's efforts to increase renewable energy penetration serve as a valuable blueprint for other island nations and communities?
