With Energy4Sahel, UNDP and partners aim to trigger sustainable socioeconomic growth and poverty reduction through increased access to clean energy in the Sahel.
Energy is one of the three core components of UNDP’s programmatic offer for the Sahel region, besides Governance and Youth. UNDP intends to complement and augment the various energy initiatives that are already being undertaken by national governments, regional organizations, finance institutions and development agencies in the Sahel. In the overall framework provided the United Nations Integrated Strategy for the Sahel (UNISS), by collaborating with these institutions and by leveraging its own network of Country Offices and UN partners, UNDP will provide further impetus for the region’s effort to push forward clean energy access for its populations as a driver for socio-economic development in a fragile post COVID-19 recovery context.
