Arab Sustainable Energy Initiative: Capacity Development Task Force
The launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the UN General Assembly in September 2015 defines the start of a new era of global development partnerships, with partnerships under SDG 7 on Sustainable Energy to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. This holds special importance in the MENA region, with aspirations across the region to scale up the share of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the region’s energy mix.
To help countries achieve this objective, the UNDP, Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) and CEBC are launching a new Arab Sustainable Energy Initiative comprising three pillars – Capacity Development, Sustainable Energy Finance, and Decentralised Energy Solutions and members are invited to join Task Forces covering these three pillars.
Purpose: To help achieve a sustainable energy transition in the MENA region, the initiative will help countries establish an enabling environment for scaling up renewable energy and energy efficiency; developing new policy and regulatory capacities, enhanced institutional effectiveness, and building capacity of local energy leaders across the region.
