EA 1: (As per the project document)

Improved national capacity for data collection and monitoring of progress on energy related sustainable development goals



A1.1  (As per the project document)Conduct a baseline review of sustainable energy data in each beneficiary country in order to assess the existing gaps in data collection. Reviews will be prepared by national and international consultants and serve as a basis for the development by a consultant of training materials for sub-regional trainings.


1. National Baseline Review Reports:
    Baseline Review of Sustainable Energy Data in:


A1.2  (As per the project document) Provide two sub-regional trainings to the national officials and experts responsible for sustainable energy data collection. The trainings will be conducted by international consultant and will focus on methods for collection, verification, aggregation and reporting of data, as well as statistical indicators relevant for monitoring of sustainable energy development. The trainings will increase knowledge of national experts on relevant for each beneficiary country best practices on collection and monitoring of national data on sustainable energy in compliance with international standards. Based on knowledge acquired during trainings,  national experts will be able to organize data collection in their countries in accordance with United Nations Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics. The project will consider organizing additional advisory missions subject to availability of additional funds.

EA 2:     (As per the project document) Strengthened national capacities to develop national action plans for sustainable energy based on the best international practices

A2.1 (As per the project document) Identify relevant best practices on sustainable energy for each beneficiary country. The studies prepared by national and international consultants will develop increased knowledge and understanding of what the best practices are throughout the UNECE region and an assessment of their applicability to the national circumstances of the beneficiary countries.  



1.   National Case Studies




2.   Analysis of National Case Studies

A2.2 (As per the project document)Multi-stakeholder consultations with the participation of national officials/experts, UNECE, ESCAP, UNDESA, Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency (UNEP-DTU Partnership), SE4ALL secretariat and others to share best practices for the development of national sustainable energy policies in each beneficiary country. These consultations will help countries to assess best practices’ applicability to the national circumstances and develop national models for improvement of sustainable energy policies.




A2.3 (As per the project document)Development of a draft National Action Plan for each beneficiary country. The draft Plans will be prepared by national entities nominated by the relevant ministries, in close cooperation with the national and international consultants as well as UNECE, ESCAP and UN DESA to support country ownership and future endorsement and implementation. The Draft Action Plans will be further submitted for the governmental approval and inclusion into relevant governmental strategies for further implementation. Draft National Action Plans will identify best practices, measures and procedures relevant to prepare a sustainable energy transition, with a particular focus on the cross-cutting nature of energy efficiency, renewable energy and energy access. Draft National Action Plans with a commitment to achieve SE4ALL objectives will include a cost-effective and customized basket of regulatory, fiscal, and financial incentives for sustainable energy development. The beneficiary countries will be further supported in the implementation of the Nantional Action Plans by advisory missions, in-kind contribution from the intergovernmental bodies responsible for energy in UNECE and ESCAP, and potential new projects/ capacity building activities in this area


1. Draft National Sustainable Energy Action Plans


A2.4 (As per the project document)Conduct a final validation workshop for the National Action Plans for sustainable energy for each beneficiary country. The national experts from each beneficiary country involved in developing the National Action Plans will undertake a final review and validate the draft National Action Plans. The main objective of the final review will be availability of all necessary incentives for sustainable energy development in the draft plans and their applicability to the national circumstances of the beneficiary countries. Experts will also identify a pathway to convert the draft plans into effective national policy frameworks. National and international consultants will prepare recommendations based on the undertaken review and submit them to the national governments for endorsement and subsequent implementation of National Action Plans.
