Energy in the Post-2015 Development Framework

Shifting to low or zero carbon energy is crucial to ending energy poverty, ensuring long-term energy security and avoiding dangerous climate change globally. Progress in many development areas is intrinsically linked with access to energy. Thus a comprehensive and integrated approach to energy under the post-2015 framework – rather than isolating it within an energy goal – would be the most effective.
