The International Solar Alliance (ISA) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at COP26 to collaborate and support the Parties in the implementation of ambitious national action in line with global efforts.
 
Under this agreement, the two institutions will jointly organize a set of activities with the UN Climate Change secretariat to facilitate the implementation of mitigation action in the energy sector, facilitate the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions, and Long-term Low Emission Development Strategies.
 
The MoU was signed by Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General of ISA and Ovais Sarmad, Deputy Executive Secretary of UNFCCC.
 
This will also lend support to developing country stakeholders including SIDs and LDCs in accelerating the adoption of policy options and approaches for decarbonization technologies.
 
Commenting on the partnership, Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General of ISA, said, “to act against the climate change and achieving Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) relating emission reduction before the target date, can be made possible by deploying solar and clean energy. UNFCCC has led from the front this climate challenge, and we are happy to partner, collaborate and endeavour to bring long-term, cost-effective and impactful solutions.”
 
ISA is an inter-governmental treaty-based international organization with a global mandate to catalyse global solar growth by helping to reduce the cost of financing and technology for solar.
 
ISA is also helping large nations scale global commitments, thereby serving the planet’s needs for reduced carbon emissions, while also helping economically more vulnerable nations establish a self-sustaining energy alternative that reduces trade dependency and drives job creation.
