Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report 2019
The 2019 version of the Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report provides the latest dashboard to gauge progress towards achieving SDG7. Now five years into the Sustainable Development Goals, the report shows that we are not on track to achieving SDG7 by 2030 and in many cases are falling further behind. Each year that goes by with little progress means the hill before us to achieve the goal by 2030 is getting steeper.
A multi-agency effort was launched to provide baseline energy data and regular updates towards the SDG7 goals of energy access, renewable energy and energy efficiency. The first Global Tracking Framework (GTF) report was published in 2013, highlighting that a business-as-usual approach would not be sufficient to meet the 2030 objectives.
Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report is a joint effort of the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), the World Bank, and the World Health Organization (WHO).
