Pathways to Sustainable Energy
The UNECE region will play an important role in attaining the international energy and climate objectives that were agreed in 2015, notably the Seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the agreement reached at the 21st COP meeting in Paris in 2015, referred to as “Paris Agreement”.

Key areas of work
The UNECE implemented the project on the “Role of Natural Gas in Attaining Sustainable Energy in the UNECE Region”
The objective of the project was to improve the understanding of the UNECE member States on the role of natural gas in achieving 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Climate Agreement.
The project complemented the UNECE flagship project Pathways to Sustainable Energy and explored the strategic options with respect to natural gas for closing the gaps between the current circumstances and both the commitments the countries have made and what is truly needed to meet long-term sustainability objectives.
