The twenty-second council meeting of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) kicked off at Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates on Tuesday.

The two-day meeting brings together high-level delegations from 97 countries to chart the agency’s medium-term strategy until 2027, which paves the way for IRENA’s strategic objectives and priorities in the next five years, said a press release.

The IRENA Council will aim to further enhance cooperation and collaborative action on key elements of the global energy transition just days before global leaders gather at the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow.

The Council meeting will be held in a hybrid setting with ISHII Masahiro, State Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan as chair.

IRENA Director-General Francesco La Camera will present IRENA’s progress report to the council, highlighting the agency’s work and activities in 2020 and 2021.

The Director-General will also present the agency’s medium-term strategy 2023-2027.
