Capacity Development Workshop on Mainstreaming the SDG on Energy

In order to support the Post-2015 development agenda, the Division for Sustainable Development in partnership with the UN Statistics Division, UN-Energy, Sustainable Energy for All, the World Bank and the International Energy Agency organized a workshop on capacity development for "Mainstreaming Energy Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Targets and Indicators into Statistical Programmes of Selected Latin American Countries" from 4-6 February 2015 in Panama City, Panama. The status of national statistical programmes and the challenges and advantages for adopting and modifying the global energy SDGs, targets and indicators at the national level were discussed at the workshop.

The workshop aimed to build capacities on devising an action plan for improving national programs to incorporate energy SDGs and assess current national energy statistics and indicators programmes within the context of the SDGs. During the course of the workshop, six international efforts on energy goals, targets, statistics and indicators were analysed and discussed: (i) Post-2015 Development Agenda and the proposed Sustainable Development Goal and target proposals on energy for sustainable development (UN-Energy/DSD), (ii) Energy Indicators for Sustainable Development (DSD), (iii) Energy Statistics Programme and International Recommendations for Energy Statistics (UNSD), (iv) Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL), (v) Global Tracking Framework (SE4ALL/WB/IEA), and (vi) Indicator and Energy Statistics Programmes and Manuals for Energy Efficiency Indicators (IEA). The outcomes of the discussions, as well as recommendations from each country on regional and international cooperation, and on challenges and advantages related to their national statistical programmes, can be found on the website of the workshop.

A similar capacity-building workshop is planned for developing countries in Africa and Asia.
