The webinar can be viewed here
On 11-12 September, the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN) held its annual conference on the topic of "Equity and Energy Justice" at Durham University, UK. As a follow-up to this conference, we have held two webinars (September and October 2017) to share highlights from the conference. 
This month, we were joined by the conference's first Keynote Speaker, Dr Rosie Day, who reflected on the broader theme of energy justice given her extensive experience in this burgeoning field. We were also joined by Dr Shikha Lakhanpal, who spoke in the panel 'Governance, Power, and Resistance', and shared examples from India. Lastly, Ms Dipti Vaghela, who spoke on the panel 'Market Solutions? Entrepreneurialism, Productive Uses, and Equity' spoke about her experience with community-focused renewable energy entrepreneurs in Myanmar.
