This UN-Energy Policy Brief was prepared in support of the SDG7 review at the High-level Political Forum 2023 in line with the UN-Energy Plan of Action Towards 2025. The Plan outlines UN-Energy’s contributions towards the implementation of the Global Action Plan for Accelerated SDG 7 Action presented by the UN Secretary-General as an outcome of the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy in 2021. The HLPF 2023 will inform the SDG Summit to be held during the UN General Assembly High-level Week in September 2023.
The drafting of this UN-Energy Policy Brief was led by the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UNESCWA) as members of UN-Energy. It builds on discussions at a UN-Energy
meeting at technical level held on 10 May 2023 in New York, and on additional technical inputs from many other UN-Energy organizations.
