The concluding workshop was held as part of the 10th International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development (10th IFESD) and provided an opportunity to share experiences from the implementation of this project in different countries. Project focal points from each of the five participating countries highlighted common priorities and challenges, reflecting on on-the-ground experiences, policy achievements, and lessons learned. Pathways to make use of existing capacities and established cooperation tools to drive forward the achievement of SDG7 were discussed.
