The lessons and programs for the UN Sustainable Energy for All Initiative, launched in 2012, underpin a community of knowledge and strategy related to the SDGs on energy, climate, and urban development. The policies explored and implemented in SE4All offer successes to build on, unexpected co-benefits to consider in integrated plans, and challenges that require investigation to understand and overcome.
