What we do

The UNDP Sustainable Energy Hub is a network of partners that work alongside countries to build net-zero, people-centered societies driven by a just, sustainable energy transition. To do so, we work with governments and partners to transform energy systems and support the integrated policy, technology and financial shifts that shape a country’s sustainable economic development.
