The SIDS Lighthouses Initiative was launched at the 2014 UN Climate Summit to support Small Island Developing States (SIDS) energy system transformation and facilitate co-ordinated support through partnerships with public, private, intergovernmental, and non-governmental stakeholder organisations. The Initiative, co-ordinated by IRENA, brings together 36 SIDS and 21 development partners, and takes a holistic approach that considers all relevant elements from policy and market frameworks, through technology options to capacity building.

IRENA participated in the Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week (LACCW) in Salvador, Brazil. Regional Climate Weeks serve as a critical stepping stone to the UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit 2019 and gathers diverse stakeholders in the public and private sectors around a common goal of addressing climate change.
