the 21st century’. 90% of urban growth is happening in the developing world
and over 50% of urban dwellers are youth. Two billion new urban inhabitants
are expected in the next 20 years.

In the face of such an evolution and the potential risk of alienation of a
growing number of urban populations, new models for viable, diverse,
peaceful, creative and vibrant cities are needed in the developing world.

The next webinar in our monthly series brings together researchers working on
energy governance issues from a range of projects funded under two different
DFID initiatives. These initiatives are the EPSRC/DFID/DECC funded
Understading Sustainable Energy Solutions (USES) programme whose 13 projects
are networked under the USES Network ( [1]) and the
DFID-funded Gender and Energy research programme which is managed by Energia
( [2]). 
Issues that will be covered in the webinar include: the roles of local
government and political decentralization in energy governance; the political
economy of energy sector dynamics and decision-making processes; Energy
sector reform and fossil-fuel subsidization and the role of cities and
municipalities in sustainable energy transitions. 

Our webinar series is a little different: each expert will speak for less
than 10 minutes and will focus on their on-the-ground experience using photos
to tell their story.

"Failure" - the word usually carries a negative connotation. But for
entrepreneurs, policymakers, and NGOs working to provide energy access to
people in the "last mile", failure can actually provide important lessons. Is
failure an important ingredient to success?

In this webinar, we’ll gather experts who will talk openly about their
