Since 2004 Jugend eine Welt has been implementing a rural development programme in Nepal and Mozambique, co-financed by the Austrian Development Cooperation.

On the occasion of this symposium project partners from Nepal and Mozambique, renowned experts as well as representatives from the private sector and non-governmental organisations will present and discuss innovative approaches in rural development.

A special focus will be laid on the opportunities and risks posed by the introduction of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions in the Global South. It is the intention of this symposium to pioneer discussion on this topic in Austria, contribute fresh thinking to the debate and to provide a networking opportunity for stakeholders engaged in rural development and sustainable energy solutions.
