To realize a future with Sustainable Energy for All, national governments are in the process of implementing integrated country actions that strategically transform their energy systems. To spur investment, action is needed to create national policy and financial environments that enable changes which the market alone will not deliver. This applies to both developing and developed countries, although the challenges to be overcome in each case may be substantially different.
Over 70 developing countries have completed rapid assessments/gap analyses to help determine the main challenges and opportunities in achieving the three goals of SEforALL. Based on these assessments, many of these countries are already taking the next steps by drafting SEforALL Action Agendas and Investment Prospectuses which aim to scale up action in priority areas, undertake strategic reforms where needed, and attract new investments and financial support.
