The purpose of this Working Paperis to inform about the partnership initiative to establish International Solar Alliance(ISA) with membership from the solar resource rich countries lying fully or partially between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The Working Paperalso intends seeking viewsfrom, and secure the approval of, solar resource rich countries on the proposed initiative. There is a gap at present in the application of solar technologies to the very large un-met demand for solar-powered technologies in solar resource rich countries. This gap arises primarily from lack of systematic information about the on-ground requirements as well as scarce opportunities for capacity building and training of users of technologies and finally, a shortage of suitable financing arrangements to make new technologies affordable to very poor users who require them.
