    Project Details

    Description

    The Global Network on Energy for Sustainable Development (GNESD) facilitated by UNEP is a south-south knowledge network, set up as a type II intervention after the World Summit of Sustainable Development (WSSD). The GNESD Secretariat is hosted at the UNEP Risoe Centre, DTU, with 10 member centres located in three continents (Africa, Asia and Latin America): AFREPREN/FWD (Kenya), ENDA (Senegal), ERC (South Africa), MEDREC (Tunisia), TERI (India), AIT (Thailand), ERI (China), Bariloche Foundation (Argentina), CENBIO/UFRJ (Brazil) and the Mario Molina Centre (Mexico).
    The objective of GNESD is to promote energy access in developing countries and to establish synergistic opportunities between energy access and development. It does this by undertaking scientific research and providing practical policies that help governments and intergovernmental organizations to further mutually inclusive energy access and development activities. Though GNESD is global, its member partners operate locally at national and regional levels.
