As part of a series of meetings on private sector climate engagement ahead of COP26, DMA are very pleased to host this high-level event with the British and Ethiopian Governments aimed at increasing investment into renewable energies on 28-29th October, 2021.
Against the background of the uncertainty around international travel and in-person meetings, DMA is hosting this two-day innovative, clean energy hybrid event combining socially distanced physical meetings at the embassy in the UK, connected via a digital platform to the government of Ethiopia.
Day one sees the government introduced to delegates and present its ambitious and globally lauded position in the run up to #COP26. Green and transition energy companies then meet privately with ministries, regulators and businesses across the renewable energy landscape recreating the energy of in-person meetings, without the real challenges of intercontinental travel to Addis Ababa.
As with all DMA activity, attendance is free, but very limited and you may attend the in-person event in either country or may join digitally for all or part of its duration.
