Urban Peri-Urban Theme

Ensuring universal access to modern energy services is imperative if the Millennium Development Goals are to be achieved. Seven centres from the Global Network on Energy for Sustainable Development (GNESD) in Africa, Asia and Latin America have analysed Urban and Peri-Urban Energy Access in a number of major cities around the world, as part of the network’s ongoing investigations into the theme of Energy Access.

The analysis includes:
  • an initial assessment of how energy is used in the selected areas;
  • assessment of existing energy policy reforms and of whether or not they have addressed the challenges facing urban poor;
  • a focus on ongoing and planned energy policy reforms, assessing how likely they are to improve access to cleaner and more sustainable energy services for the poor;
  • assessment of how policy processes could be improved to promote better access to cleaner energy services to address poverty alleviation and environmental concerns, and stimulate productive uses of energy;
  • identification of viable and proven policy options that can assist in providing cleaner and more sustainable energy services to the poor in the rapidly growing urban and peri-urban areas;
  • recommendations for relevant policy actions.
