Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship for Inclusive Development: Women and Youth Empowerment

A truly sustainable development encompasses all dimensions of society, and the developmental challenges are synergistic opportunities for empowerment of previously marginalized societies and demographics, especially women and youth. Today it gains wide recognition that the empowerment and engagement of women and youth is vital to the achievement of inclusive and sustainable development. In particular, this panel will bring together the approach and experience of the UN and partners in leveraging the power of entrepreneurship and technology innovation for the energy and climate sector, and will feature successful case studies of women and youth entrepreneurs in the energy and climate technology space leading the energy transition.
