Overview :

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is present in more than 170 countries and territories and contributes to the eradication of poverty, the reduction of inequalities and the increase of sustainability. In this challenging scenario, the development of partnerships is a crucial aspect for the achievement of UNDP's goals and the engagement of different institutions from the private and public sectors. In the area of environment and sustainable development, the mandate of UNDP is to support countries in integrating environment, energy and climate change into national policies, strategies and programmes, adapting to climate change and ensuring access to environmental and energy services for the poorest. Climate change is now the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced, threatening the water and food security, health, livelihoods and security of billions of people. The global response to this challenge must be fair, inclusive, and leave no one behind, while seeking the most effective climate solutions that advance multiple sustainable development goals at once. 

Under the new Strategic Plan (2022-2025), energy is one of UNDP’s six signature solutions – alongside poverty and inequality, governance, resilience, environment, and gender equality - to support countries towards three directions of change: structural transformation, leaving no one behind and resilience. Scaled-up programming efforts on energy access and the energy transition will be coordinated under the newly established Sustainable Energy Hub (SEH), which represents parts of the organization’s systematic and programmatic approach to respond to the energy and climate change agendas. As per UNDP’s new Strategic Plan 2022-2025, the main objective of UNDP is increasing energy access for those furthest behind. By speeding up investment in distributed renewable energy solutions, especially for those hardest to reach and in crisis contexts, it aims to increase access to clean and affordable energy for 500 million people by the year 2025. 

Through the Sustainable Energy Hub, UNDP will harness networks, experience and innovation to scale-up energy programming efforts and shape policy, building on the existing portfolio of energy projects, covering over 100 countries to harness clean energy and support the energy access and transition as well as on UNDP’s Climate Promise, UNDP’s Sustainable Finance Hub and UNDP’s Digital offer. UNDP will also work with Governments in programme countries as they recover and build forward better from COVID-19 and with investors to unlock and harness public and private finance to power progress towards multiple SDGs. Finally, recognizing that change will be disruptive, UNDP will strive to ensure that such transitions are just, and that their impact on vulnerable people is understood and duly mitigated.
