Fedarene Info 24 – Focus on Renewable Energies within the International Cooperation

Summer 2004

International cooperation represents a key-element in the development of renewable sources of energy. In addition to protecting the environment, such developments offer new economic, social and cultural prospects both in northern and southern countries. Convinced by this idea, several members of Fedarene set up partnerships with regions such as those of the Galapagos Islands, China and Kikimi in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
On the eve of the Bonn Conference, “Renewables 2004”, Osman Benchikh, responsible for renewable energies in UNESCO, reviews the main benefits of international cooperation.
