The Least Developed Countries Report 2017

The Least Developed Countries Report 2017: Transformational Energy Access will be presented to the Trade and Development Board.

The report argues that the economic dimension of modern energy access in the least developed countries has so far received too little attention in the discourse on achieving universal access to modern energy, foreseen in Sustainable Development Goal 7.

In order for these countries to achieve structural transformation and fully harness the economic potential of energy access, they need to adopt a different strategy for energy.

They require an approach that goes beyond meeting basic domestic needs to encompass what the report calls transformational energy access. In particular, the approach required is one that meets the needs of firms and farms for adequate, reliable, affordable and sustainable supplies of energy for productive uses.
