Executive Summary

The UN General Assembly resolution 65/151, which was passed on 20 December 2010, designated 2012 as the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All. This was in recognition of the growing importance of energy for economic development and climate change mitigation. It also attempted to correct what many people working on energy and development issues had for many years argued was a major error in not including action on energy poverty in the Millennium Development Goals. The UN Secretary General established the Sustainable Energy for All Initiative in September 2011, in order to guide and support efforts to achieve universal access to modern energy services, rapidly double the rate of energy efficiency, and double the use of renewable energies in the global energy mix.

At country level, this initiative is expected to be implemented in 3 steps namely (1) conduct a rapid situational assessment and gap analysis of its energy sector, (2) develop an action plan that will give national priorities in the energy sector, and (3) implement the action plan.

This report is the product of step 1 on rapid situational assessment and gap analysis.
