Intro to Energy Access Measurement Methodologies, the Multi-Tier Framework and Digital Tools

SDG7 aims at having universal access to affordable, reliable and sustainable modern energy by 2030. In order to reach the goal, the concept and measurement of energy access has gained significant interests from governments and development agencies.

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) of The World Bank, under the SE4ALL initiative, in consultation with multiple development partners has developed the Multi-tier Framework (MTF) to monitor and evaluate energy access by following a multidimensional approach. This comprehensive framework complements the binary approach currently used to track progress toward SDG targets.

The objective of the online seminar is to provide an introduction to this methodology and explore the advantages and drawbacks of the MTF approach.

Since more than half of the materials that humans use on earth are “cementitious” – including concrete, cement and other building materials – it is currently difficult to imagine a life without cement. On the contrary, an increasing use can be expected. Therefore, the need for sustainable pathways in the production of such materials is growing.
