Reducing energy poverty and building resilience through NDC action

Facilitators: Reiner Lemoine Institute, Factor, GIZ, NREL/LEDS GP, Practical Action Contributors: Sarah Berendes (Reiner Lemoine Institute)

SDG 7 aims to provide energy access to all by 2030 yet significant challenges remain. Delivering this goal can simultaneously provide significant climate benefits, but will require substantial scale-up in investment, especially in renewable off-grid solutions. This session will examine how NDC efforts can also help achieve SDG 7. It will discuss ways to align climate, energy and development strategies through the NDC framework and explore approaches to accelerate implementation.
