Report – 2022 SDG7 TAG Policy Briefs: Addressing Energy’s Interlinkages with other SDGs

Publication Year: 2022 Publisher: UNITED NATIONS

Background

The SDG7 Policy Briefs are released annually in support of the deliberations at the High-level Political Forum, contributing also to the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July, and the implementation of the Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs and the UN Decade of Sustainable Energy for All 2014-2024. The Briefs are compiled by the multi-stakeholder SDG7 Technical Advisory Group, composed of 40 experts from Governments, UN and international organizations, and other stakeholders.

This year, the advisory group specifically examined the data available and potential indicators to measure the role that energy plays in education (SDG 4), gender equality (SDG 5) and sustainable land use (SDG 15), among the goals that will be under in-depth consideration by this year's High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in July.
