The issue of fuels was deliberated on during the Africa, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) parliamentary assembly forum taking place in Kigali. 

The resolutions included supporting youth-led renewable energy initiatives for them to find long-term solutions to the problems encountered by their respective countries.

Solar and wind energy are considered green energies that don’t affect the climate. The use of it was proposed as a solution by parliamentarians in the ACP. The deputy speaker of the Tanzanian parliament Dr. Tulia Ackson, MP Fauminia Lina from Samoa Islands and MP Monica Semeno from Europe stresses the importance of encouraging the youth to take on the challenge of climate change.

Rwanda has a goal of reaching at least 2024 with countrywide access to power with at least 48% made of solar energy. Reducing firewood users from 83% to 60% in the same projected year.
