Priority recommendations. Results and action matrix. Goal. Context. Challenges and opportunities. Recommendations. Impacts: prioritizing actions for enabling just inclusive energy transitions.
The goals set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change together provide an integrated pathway towards a more prosperous, equitable, and sustainable future—a future enabled by a just and inclusive transition to clean and modern energy. Despite making progress towards some of the SDGs— like improving maternal health and expanding access to electricity—these advances have sometimes been offset elsewhere, for instance, by rising food insecurity, lack of access to clean cooking, deterioration of the natural environment, and persistent inequalities. The Covid-19 global public health pandemic has caused further disruption to SDG progress, with the world’s most vulnerable people being most affected by it. Meanwhile, climate change is posing tremendous risks to SDG achievement, and the progress being made on the goals remains grossly inadequate. Climate change is affecting those most at-risk and with the least resources to adapt to it, creating yet another pressure point for the vulnerable across the world. In the face of all these challenges, sustainable energy is key to our collective efforts to accelerate the pace of implementation and to deliver on the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. Countries and regions must design and implement their varied energy transitions pathways to be just and inclusive in order to accelerate our collective action, not only to secure delivery of these goals but to ensure the ‘future we want’.
