  • Chair: H.E. Tawfiq-e-Elahi Chowdhury

Session Concept:

Energy security and sustainable development is a much-talked issue because of its huge consumption, volatile energy prices in international market and concerns over environmental sustainability and particularly about the global climate. These issues are critically important for Bangladesh in which impressive economic growth has boosted the demand for energy and put corresponding strains on the environment. To pursue energy security, Bangladesh needs to ensure that energy supplies are available, sufficient, affordable and sustainable. This will mean taking a broad range of measures: conserving and raising energy efficiency; rationalizing pricing and taxation systems; improving energy sector governance; and diversifying energy supplies, in particular making greater use of alternative and renewable resources.
