The attainment of the sustainable energy targets in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) is not on track, either globally or in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region. Unless there is a significant acceleration of efforts and outcomes to ensure quality access to energy that is affordable and that meets the environmental, social, and economic imperatives of the 2030 Agenda, the international community will fall short of its ambitions and its commitments.
United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is the regional development arm of the United Nations and serves as the main economic and social development centre for the United Nations in Asia and the Pacific. Its mandate is to foster cooperation among its 53 members and nine associate members. ESCAP provides the strategic link between global and country-level programmes and issues. It supports governments of the region in consolidating regional positions and advocates regional approaches to meeting the region’s unique socioeconomic challenges in a globalizing world.
The third edition of the GTF provides an evidence-based look at progress at the regional, country, and international level toward ensuring universal access to modern energy services, doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix, and doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency. The report provides an overview of long-term trends since 1990 and focuses on progress achieved in the most recent period, 2012–14.
The second edition of Sustainable Energy For All (SE4All) Global Tracking Framework provides an update on how fast the world moved toward sustainable energy goals between 2010 and 2012. It tracks progress toward universal access to modern energy, doubling the rate of energy efficiency improvements and doubling the share of renewable energy consumption in the global energy mix. The report also assesses whether the world is moving fast enough to achieve those goals by 2030.
The first SE4All Global Tracking Framework identified indicators that track progress toward the SE4All objectives of universal access to modern energy, doubling the rate of energy efficiency improvements and doubling the share of renewable energy consumption in the global energy mix. It draws on data from more than 180 countries, which account for more than 95 percent of the world's population. The report also documented the evolution of the indicators between 1990 and 2010 to provide a baseline for assessing progress in the next twenty years.
