Japan’s proposal on focus area 7 at the 11th session of SDGs-OWG

Focus area 7. Energy

Energy policies should be consistent with SE4All and therefore subareas a), b) and c) are the targets to be under the energy goal.
To be consistent with G20 Pittsburgh declaration, subarea e) should read as follows: “rationalize and phase out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies that encourage wasteful consumption over the medium term”.
