Faith in Action: Empowering the Poor to Reach Universal Energy Access

WFDD partnered with the United Nations Foundation to convene a day-long workshop on the roles of faith-inspired actors working to achieve universal energy access. The event brought together experts, faith leaders, and development practitioners to highlight the theological rationale, opportunities, and challenges surrounding faith-inspired efforts to alleviate energy poverty. The initiative grew from a June 2012 study conducted by the United Nations Foundation towards achieving universal energy access by 2030 – the first of three objectives under the UN Secretary-General’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative. A draft background report was made available to participants prior to the event.
