Energy is central to many economic, social and environmental concerns facing the world today. Lack of access to reliable, affordable and sustainable energy services contributes to a self-perpetuating cycle of poverty and problems of health, gender inequity and environmental degradation. Developing countries need reliable access to modern energy if they are to achieve economic growth, reduce poverty and improve the health of their citizens. Investment in modern energy is indispensable for a prosperous and sustainable future. UNDP is helping people gain access to modern energy for the Future We Want.
Today UNDP is launching a video public service announcement on sustainable energy for all. The video highlights UNDP’s role in helping people gain access to renewable energy. Click on the image above to access the video!
