While all energy options can have negative impacts on people and the environment, whether biofuels or wind or wave, and these impacts can be reduced or even avoided with proactive engagement in planning and siting developments. This can be as directed by governments, and also through companies employing best practice.
This poster aims to highlight the various issues and approaches identified by Members and partners, to support the transition to a green economy in their home countries.
The poster will illustrate where a more sophisticated and balanced discussion around energy choices can assist with energy policy. Information and processes needed to proactively reduce environmental risks and promote opportunities associated with renewable energy and energy efficiency will be presented in a clear and easily accessible manner.
The poster will showcase energy work from the last global programme in different areas of IUCN, from Oceania to Europe at different scales and serve as a reference as renewable energy deplyoment accelerates over the coming years.
Important questions such as 'what is sustainable energy' will be highlighted, and post-Jeju actions will be encouraged.
