SDG7 aims at having universal access to affordable, reliable and sustainable modern energy by 2030. In order to reach the goal, the concept and measurement of energy access has gained significant interests from governments and development agencies.
The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) of The World Bank, under the SE4ALL initiative, in consultation with multiple development partners has developed the Multi-tier Framework (MTF) to monitor and evaluate energy access by following a multidimensional approach. This comprehensive framework complements the binary approach currently used to track progress toward SDG targets.
The objective of the online seminar is to provide an introduction to this methodology and explore the advantages and drawbacks of the MTF approach.
- How is energy access measured in the tiered-spectrum?
- What are the objectives of the Global Survey for Multi-tier Energy Access Tracking?
- Why is the approach relevant and what are ways forward for its implementation and improvement?
- How can it be connected to further basic services assessments and collected using digital tools?
Join me to explore this novel approach, which shifts the energy access paradigm!
