The International Solar Alliance (ISA) is a coalition of more than 121 countries focused on advancing the use of solar energy and reducing dependence on fossil fuels by countries which lie either completely or partly between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The ISA was launched at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris at the end of 2015 by the President of France and the Prime Minister of India. The aim is for countries to work together to deploy appropriate benchmarks, facilitate resource assessments, and support research and development and demonstration facilities, with a view to encourage innovative and affordable applications of solar technologies.
