SDG7 Affordable and Clean Energy

Asia-Pacific Energy Portal

The Asia Pacific Energy Portal is one aspect of ESCAP’s support to regional member States under the Asian and Pacific Energy Forum (APEF). With the generous support of the Russian Federation, the portal has been designed to serve as an informational foundation, helping to meet that mandate and support ESCAP’s ongoing energy-related activities. The portal was launched at the 71st Commission Session in May 2015 and continues to develop with new features and content.

Sustainable Eco Village Development

Over two-thirds of households in India still rely on traditional biomass for cooking. Open fires and primitive stoves are rather inefficient at converting energy into heat for cooking and emit a significant amount of smoke which can have harmful effects on heath as well as on the environment. While women play a major role in family lives, being those who are cooking, collecting firewood, water, and working in agriculture, they are seldom included in decision-making processes.

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions through Community Forests and Sustainable Biomass Energy

While innovation and technology can accelerate climate change mitigation and curb greenhouse gas emissions, levels of acceptance of new ways of doing things remain low among traditional societies. A user-centred design approach can be useful in raising acceptance of a new technology, as the needs of the user are considered throughout the design process.
