The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) regional Global Tracking Framework report is part of a series of multi-agency assessments that monitor progress towards the three Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG 7) objectives. This first edition of the report builds upon the 2017 Global Tracking Framework report, by tracking the indicators of each SDG 7 objective within the UNECE sub-regions. The report then goes further to identify the current status of sustainable energy across a broader set of energy indicators, identifies key issues along the energy value chain, and highlights UNECE country responses to initiate change. The report further argues that this broader set of energy indicators is required to comprehensively track energy for sustainable development.



Executive Summary

If the world is to develop in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it will be necessary to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy services while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the carbon footprint of the energy sector. The Sustainable Development Goal for energy (SDG 7) has three principal objectives: ensure universal access to modern energy services; significantly increase the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix; and double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.
