Policy Dinner: Bringing Cooperation on Climate Change and the Energy Transition into Geopolitics

Invitation Only; Registration Required

As the world has started the shift toward a new energy system, a new era of geopolitics is emerging. It is vital for global peace and sustainable development to develop a cooperative framework for geopolitics in the midst of this change. Based on a workshop held in April, we will examine several new directions for bringing cooperation on climate change and the energy transition into geopolitics including the following:

  • The concept of energy security in the fossil fuel paradigm compared to a renewables paradigm,
  • How the decline of fossil fuels raises questions about fundamental assumptions in major international security relationships and alignments,
  • New frameworks for regional cooperation, especially among developing countries, on renewable energy systems,
  • How major importing economies of oil and gas can explore mutual benefits in accelerating the energy transition and managing supply and demand volatility,
  • Further surfacing of the potential cooperative geopolitical alignments around finance and trade.
