UNDP and Gyeongsangbuk-do province to boost energy access for the poor
The UNDP Seoul Policy Centre and the Gyeongsangbuk-do Provincial Government signed a letter of intent to work together in increasing energy access in least developed countries today. Cooperation will focus on combining universal energy access and poverty reduction goals.
A lack of access to energy has serious knock on effects on health, education and income and is a significant cause of chronic poverty in many developing countries.
'Energy access boosts economic and human development and helps countries meet the Millennium Development Goals. We’re delighted to join forces with the Gyeongsangbuk-do Provincial Government on this and I’m very much looking forward to turning this agreement into action’ said Anne-Isabelle Degryse-Blateau, Director of the UNDP Seoul Policy Centre.
The agreement is the first of kind between UNDP and a Provincial Government in Korea. It will support the first goal of the UN Secretary-General’s ‘Sustainable Energy for All Initiative’, which aims to provide energy access to everyone by 2030.
The signing ceremony took place at the World Green Energy Forum 2012 held in Gyeongju, Republic of Korea, from October 17th to 19th.
Government representatives from the Republic of Korea, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, India and Pakistan as well as international organizations and other bodies shared their views and achievements in green energy, and
The Republic of Korea has embraced green growth initiatives both at home and in its development assistance overseas. Gyeongsangbuk-do province is a leader in green energy, with research and development facilities and solar photovoltaic, wind, nuclear and fuel cell industries within the East Coast energy cluster.
Collaboration between the UNDP Seoul Policy Centre and Gyeongsangbuk-do province will help share this experience with developing countries.
