Workshops: Achieving Global Energy Access Goals in The Decade of Actions

Energy access has been a continuous G20 priority throughout many presidencies, given its critical significance in achieving SDG7. This year’s G20 Presidency underlines the need to improve multi-level international cooperation and partnership on universal energy access, especially in sharing best practices for clean cooking and clean electrification, within the double contexts of post-pandemic recovery and acceleration of a just & equitable energy transition. The G20 continues to build on previous Presidencies’ initiatives, notably the G20 Initiative on Clean Cooking and Energy Access (led by the Saudi Arabia G20 Presidency) and the crucial role G20 Members must play in promoting energy access and eradicating energy poverty (led by the Italian G20 Presidency). These initiatives embody the spirit of “leave no-one behind” with the aim to secure the accessibility towards affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. The G20 Energy Transitions Working Group (ETWG) also underlines the need to improve multi-level international cooperation and partnership on universal energy access, especially in sharing best practices for clean cooking and clean electrification, within the double contexts of post-pandemic recovery and just energy transitions. The G20 Indonesian Presidency places particular attention on the capacity building and transfer of knowledge needed for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) – including but not limited to Asia-Pacific region – so as to ensure that no one (and no island) is left behind.
