The World Bank Energy Knowledge Hub focuses on producing knowledge and data to track progress on the Sustainable Development Goal on Energy (SDG7) and related climate goals. The main data platforms of the Knowledge Hub: The SDG7 Tracking is a comprehensive tool to track the energy pillars on access, renewables and efficiency. The Multi-Tier Framework (MTF) is a tool that captures in more detail other dimensions of energy to provide more accurate data on the actual services households receive. Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE) is a scorecard that captures what policies are in place to facilitate progress on sustainable energy solutions worldwide.
In order to achieve the Paris Agreement goals, countries need to come forward with more ambitious new or updated NDCs by 2020. Opportunities arising from higher climate ambition and a more thorough integration with the SDGs, especially SDG7, requires more systematic attention.
This event will look at the ways data platforms can be leveraged to address pressing climate and sustainable energy issues.
The Event aims to:
All participants of the Climate and SDG Synergy Conference: policymakers in the areas of climate change and SDGs, diplomats, NGOs, academia.
