Ending Energy Poverty Saves Lives and the Planet

Description

As the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All, Damilola Ogunbiyi is passionate about ending energy poverty. With prior experience in running Nigeria's Rural Electrification Agency, she knows firsthand that as long as people do not have adequate and clean energy, the world will not realize climate or sustainable development ambitions, and lives and livelihoods will be lost. Progress demands collective commitment and clear plans, tools and finance, with the upcoming high-level dialogue on energy offering a chance to mobilize action.
