|Civil Society Call: Energy for All 2030|

Globally, one fifth of the population lacks access to electricity and 2.5 billion people depend on traditional biomass for cooking. Sub-Saharan Africa is the region hardest hit, with two in every three families living without electricity. According to ‘business as usual’ projections by the International Energy Agency (IEA), by 2030 the same number of people will be living in energy poverty as today.
Addressing this disparity, KITE has joined forces with over 70 European and sub Saharan African Organization to produce a call dubbed “Civil Society Call: Energy for All 2030”, calling on EU leaders to commit to eradicating energy poverty and achieving universal energy access by 2030.
