[NEWS] How African Governments can Achieve Energy-related SDGs

根據聯合國的說法,儘管全球能源使用取得了相當大的進展,但世界仍未走上實現能源相關的可持續發展目標,以實現普及能源並增加可再生能源和能源效率。

國際能源協會(IEA)發布的一份政策簡報指出,2016年無電人口數量從2000年的17億減少到2016年的10億左右。

由於包括孟加拉國,埃塞俄比亞,印度,肯尼亞和坦桑尼亞在內的一些國家的成功,每年獲得電力的人數正在加速增長。 電網電氣化一直是2000年以來獲得幾乎所有能源的來源,並且很可能仍然是許多家庭最有利的選擇,特別是在人口密度更高的地區。

According to the United Nations, the world is not on track to achieving energy-related Sustainable Development Goals for universal energy access and increasing renewables and energy efficiency though considerable progress has been made in global energy access.

The number of people without access to electricity fell to around 1 billion in 2016 from 1.7 billion in 2000 says a policy brief published by the International Energy Association (IEA).

The number of people gaining access to electricity each year is accelerating, due to strong successes in some countries, including Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, and Tanzania. Grid electrification has been the source of almost all energy access gained since 2000 and is likely to remain the most favorable option for many households, especially in more densely populated areas.

[NEWS] A New Type of Leadership from National Governments is Essential for Success of the SDGs

在全球社會致力於實現2030年議程提出的雄心勃勃的可持續發展目標(SDGs)的三年之後,經合組織發展援助委員會(DAC)成員國中的30個國家仍然努力在國內翻譯此框架。 可持續發展目標適用於富國和窮國,它為集體行動提供了一個框架,突出了發展重點,國家和人民的相互依存關係。 到2030年實現雄心勃勃的目標將需要在教育,城市發展,供水,減緩氣候變化,孕產婦和兒童健康等許多領域進行協調,僅舉幾個優先領域。

Three years after the global community committed to the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) put forth by the 2030 Agenda, the 30 countries that are members of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) are still struggling to translate this framework domestically. Applicable to rich and poor nations alike, the SDGs provide a framework for collective action that highlights the interdependence of development priorities, countries, and people. Achieving the ambitious goals by 2030 will entail harmonization across many sectors—from education, to urban development, to water supply, to climate mitigation, to maternal and child health, to name just a few priority areas.
