International Congress REENCON-XXI «Renewable Energy XXI century: energy and economic efficiency” will be held on 13-14 October 2016 in Moscow.
The Congress is an initiative of the Russian Academy of Sciences, National Research University “Higher School of Economics” and the International Sustainable Energy Development Centre under the auspices of UNESCO.
The United Nations General Assembly today opened its 71st session, with an emphasis on ensuring that implementation of the new global development goals, adopted by its 193 Member States last year, is well underway.
“The 70th Session launched the SDGs [Sustainable Development Goals], and for integrity’s sake the 71st must be the year we witness the wheels turning on the implementation of all 17 SDGs,” the President of the General Assembly, Peter Thomson, said as he took an oath of office before proceeding to open the new session.
The Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, jointly with the UNDP-GEF Project "Building energy efficiency in the North-West of Russia,” organizes the 2nd international competition for the best project in the field of energy conservation and energy efficiency among students and postgraduates of higher education institutions in the Russian Federation (RF), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and the countries of the European Union (EU).
Global temperatures for the first six months of this year reached new highs, setting 2016 on track to be the hottest-ever on record, the United Nations weather agency said today.
“Another month, another record. And another. And another. Decades-long trends of climate change are reaching new climaxes, fuelled by the strong 2015/2016 El Niño,” said World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Secretary-General Petteri Taalas in a press release.
