Promote the transition to efficient lighting through the implementation of an integrated policy approach which will effectively phase-out inefficient incandescent lamps while taking into account susta.

Implementation methodologies

In order to achieve the goal set by the commitments, en.lighten developed a wide range of tools to help countries in the transition to efficient lighting, including: an Efficient Lighting Policy Toolkit, Country Lighting Assessments, Global Policy Mapping and other guidance. A Global Partnership Programme was launched to catalyze development of national and regional policy, a Centre of Excellence provides guidance and technical advice to countries.
