14th International JODI Conference

20-21 October 2019   |   Cario, Egypt


The 14th International JODI Conference will be held in Cairo, Egypt on 20-21 October 2019. The Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum will host the event under the auspices of HE Tarek El-Molla, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources of Egypt.

Energy producing, and consuming countries have successfully fostered the Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI) throughout nearly two decades of mutually dedicated and sustained cooperation by all stakeholders. IEF Ministers at their latest IEF16 Ministerial Meeting in India (April 2018) stressed their ongoing interest in improving global energy market transparency and their support for a strengthened JODI. This biennial JODI Conference plays a key role in the JODI development cycle which aims to continually advance the global energy data transparency agenda in support of stable energy markets as advocated by IEF Ministers, G20 leaders, and other stakeholders.

This 14th International JODI Conference (IJC14) will convene actors contributing to enhanced energy data transparency at various stages of the JODI data supply chain, including industry representatives, experts from national administrations, the JODI Partners themselves (APEC, Eurostat, GECF, IEA, IEF, OLADE, OPEC, UNSD), JODI Associates (AFREC, OAPEC) and other JODI data users from around the world. Sustained and enhanced interaction among this diverse and growing group is vital to the ongoing success of the Initiative.

The Agenda discussion items for IJC14 will be:

• JODI Success Stories and Improvement Opportunities
• Redefining the Value of the Energy Data Transparency Initiative
• Benefits of JODI Cooperation Mechanism Across Energy Data Supply Chain
• Make JODI Capacity Building Efforts Truly Beneficial for All
• Strategies for Enhanced Visibility of Energy Data Transparency and its Benefits
• Maximise Benefits of Energy Data Transparency – Beyond Current JODI Framework
• JODI Actions toward 2025

IJC14 offers a rare opportunity for a cross-section of data providers and users from around the globe to meet and share their experiences. The JODI Partners envisage that the discussions and exchange of ideas during the conference will help to strengthen existing JODI activities, and will also serve as a catalyst to enhance the role of JODI beyond its current framework.

JODI represents more than a database, it is a commitment to on-going dialogue and actions among all stakeholders. Coordinated efforts on this scale require constant reinforcement and adaptation.
