Regional cooperation is also crucial in order to achieve sustainable energy and maintain energy security. Mindful of these variables, the first session of the Committee on Energy met to begin developing a regional approach to overcoming these common energy challenges. A roundtable discussion during the Committee featured ministers sharing their visions and strategies on what their countries and the Committee can accomplish to guide the region towards a more sustainable energy future.
