The Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA) issued a communique at the end of its ministerial meeting early in December that future development priorities supported by the provision of energy must be based on low-emission technologies that promote clean, sustainable and affordable energy that is safe and efficient. The IEA also recommends that the flow of funds and aid to countries to some extent will depend on how those countries deal with their policies, commitments and actions toward reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
The euphemistic narrative tagline is a program for the transition to clean energy. The IEA is an autonomous intergovernmental organization of developed countries within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) with a mandate to promote energy security, economic development and environmental protection.
