Framework Agreement Of The International Solar Alliance

Mike Burroughs

This is an important global initiative for the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement, which provides for rapid use of solar installations. Subsequently, 107 other countries joined the agreement, including all major countries between the tropics of cancer and Capricorn, including Mexico, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Brazil, India, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and China. From November 30, 2015, a conclave for the solar group, InSPA (International Agency for Solar Policy and Enforcement), began. [17] ? In order to universalise ISA membership beyond the tropics, the Alliance`s first General Assembly adopted, on 3 October 2018, the amendment of the Framework Agreement on its establishment to extend the scope of membership to all UN Member States. The ISA is an alliance of 121 countries, most of which are sunny countries, located either in whole or in part between the circle of cancer and the circle of Capricorn. For India, possible additional benefits of the alliance may be to strengthen relations with major African countries and increase India`s goodwill among them. [14] [15] ? The ISA aims to bring countries together to provide a collective response to the main common barriers to the massive use of solar energy in terms of technology, finance and capacity. The alliance is a treaty-based intergovernmental organization. [7] The Framework Agreement of the International Solar Alliance was launched for signature in November 2016 in Marrakech (Morocco) on the sidelines of the Marrakesh Conference on Climate Change (twenty-second session of the Conference of the Parties or COP 22). On the first day (15 sixteen countries signed the agreement: India, Brazil, Democratic Republic of Congo, Dominican Republic, Republic of Guinea, Mali; Nauru; Niger; Tanzania; Tuvalu; Cambodia; Ethiopia; Burkina Faso; Bangladesh and Madagascar. [7] On 17 November, Guinea-Bissau, Fiji and France also signed the agreement. [16] On November 6, 2017, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj met with Guinean Foreign Minister Mamady Toure. During this meeting, Mamady Toure handed over Guinea`s act of accession to the International Solar Alliance (ISA) initiated by India.

Vanuatu and Liberia have also signed the agreement. [2] At the World Future Energy Summit (WFES), held in Abu Dhabi in January 2018, the Indian government announced the creation of a $350 million solar development fund to enable the financing of solar projects. Riccardo Puliti, Senior Director and Director of energy & Extractives Global Practice at the World Bank, said: "The World Bank is seeing an increase in our customers` interest in solar energy due to the dramatic cost reductions experienced in recent years. We hope that the Global Solar Atlas will help make the crucial planning and investment decisions that will need to be made over the next ten years to become more sustainable forms of energy. Piyush Goyal, India`s Minister of Energy, said: "This new tool will help governments and investors get a first indication of the potential of solar resources before making their own more detailed analysis. The focus is on the use of solar electricity.. . . .
