The UN General-Secretary, the President of the EU Commission and Ministers of Development from European countries together with representatives from developing countries, the private sector and civil society will discuss how the EU can contribute to the implementation of the UN General-Secretary’s initiative on Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL). A separate part of the conference will focus on the specific challenges related to women’s access to modern energy services in developing countries.

The SE4ALL initiative was launched by the UN Secretary-General in 2011. The initiative contains three objectives which should be achieved by 2030 and which combine the development and the climate change agenda:

  1. Ensure universal access to modern energy services
  2. Double the rate of improvement in energy efficiency globally
  3. Double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

The initiative aims at bringing together a wide range of actors, including donors, developing countries, private companies, NGOs, academics and so on. The UN’s General Assembly has declared 2012 “The International Year of Sustainable Energy for All”.
