This webinar brought together researchers working on energy governance issues from a range of projects funded under two different DFID initiatives. These initiatives are the EPSRC/DFID/DECC funded Understading Sustainable Energy Solutions (USES) programme whose 13 projects are networked under the USES Network (http://www.lcedn.com/uses) and the DFID-funded Gender and Energy research programme which is managed by Energia (http://www.energia.org/research).
Issues that were covered in the webinar included: the roles of local government and political decentralization in energy governance; the political economy of energy sector dynamics and decision-making processes; energy sector reform and fossil-fuel subsidization and the role of cities and municipalities in sustainable energy transitions.
Our webinar series is a little different: each expert spoke for less than 10 minutes and focused on their on-the-ground experience using photos to tell their story.
