The Third Asian and Pacific Energy Forum (APEF2023) will review the progress of the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 7 in the Asia-Pacific region as well as the implementation of the Ministerial Declaration on Regional Cooperation for Energy Transition towards Sustainable and Resilient Societies in Asia and the Pacific, 2018 – 2023 (ESCAP/APEF/2023/1).
Given that enhancing energy security and developing appropriate policies and strategies to attain the Sustainable Development Goals are major concerns and a challenge for all member States in the ESCAP region, ministers and heads of delegations may wish to deliberate the progress achieved through the initiatives the Secretariat has been implemented to support member States. These initiatives include the progress on development of SDG 7 road maps for countries in the region, the implementation of the regional road map on power system connectivity: promoting cross-border electricity connectivity for sustainable development and the Secretariat’s work on emerging areas of the energy transition.
