COP23: Creating affordable access to energy
Climate change will increase worldwide poverty if no additional efforts are made. Climate change adaptation and mitigation are intrinsic parts of our work to alleviate poverty. By providing affordable access to clean energy, increasing farmers' resilience and stimulating clean cooking solutions, we create economic, social and health benefits for families and businesses while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
SNV will attend the UN Climate Change Conference 2017 (COP23) taking place from 6 to 17 November in Bonn. We will also host a side-event on 10 November. Come and join us if you are at COP23 or join us online via @SNVworld or @SNV_RE on Twitter.
