Stronger Together: Why Networks of Energy Access Practitioners Matter

On 18 January, WISIONS hosted the first in a series of webinars. It was entitled “Stronger Together: Why Networks of Energy Access Practitioners Matter” – watch the recording or view the individual slides now.Minimize

Access to energy has the potential to change lives across the Global South, and it is enshrined in Sustainable Development Goal 7. But often efforts are fragmented, and the same mistakes are repeated. That’s where networks of energy practitioners come in.

Energy practitioners are spearheading efforts to make sure that those most at risk of being ‘left behind’ are included. Their work in the field, academia, development institutions and in communities means that they have in-depth knowledge of the requirements, conditions, and challenges of ensuring sustainable energy access. Mobilizing their knowledge and expertise is essential to achieving SDG 7 and supporting many other SDGs for people and the planet.
