India presides over International Solar Alliance Assembly

India presided over the 5th assembly of the International Solar Alliance that began in New Delhi on October 17 and will continue till October 20, 2022.

Participants from 109 countries will be sharing their experiences towards a low-carbon economy through the promotion of solar energy at the 4-day event under India's presidency. The 2022 Governance Meetings of the International Solar Alliance (ISA) were initiated in July this year.

"At ISA we are passionate about making a sizable impact on the adverse effects caused by climate change while ensuring that the development efforts are not hampered. The groundwork with multilateral support and multi-stakeholder partnerships has been laid out and with the fifth Assembly, we hope to accelerate actions on global solarisation, scaling and expanding the impact of our interventions across nations, and growing and actualising its existing pipeline for solar projects.

"To enable this, the International Solar Alliance aspires to become the go-to platform that brings together resources from around the world to surgically target the challenges faced by our Member Countries in the deployment of solar energy solutions," said ISA Director General Ajay Mathur.

The International Solar Alliance (ISA) is an action-oriented, member-driven, collaborative platform for the increased deployment of solar energy technologies.

The ISA was conceived as a joint effort by India and France to mobilize efforts against climate change through the deployment of solar energy solutions.

The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has granted Observer Status to the International Solar Alliance (ISA).
