Background

The “Accelerating SDG 7 achievement policy briefs” were prepared by the multi-stakeholder SDG 7 Technical Advisory Group convened by UN DESA to support the SDG 7 review process at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF). The Advisory Group brings together representatives from governments, UN entities, international organizations and other stakeholders. 50 organizations, including 21 from the UN system, cooperated to produce a series of 27 policy briefs. The briefs explore SDG 7 and its interlinkages with other SDGs, including advancing SDG 7 implementation, strengthening interlinkages between SDG 7 and other SDGs, regional perspectives and experiences, and building a sustainable and equitable energy future. spell

The policy briefs include a Summary for Policy Makers, which presents a Global Agenda for Accelerated SDG 7 Action. The Global Agenda is a collective response to tackling the challenges of SDG 7 and creating a foundation for concerted action by governments and all relevant stakeholders.
