The SE4All Initiative

The Sustainable Energy for All Initiative is a multi-stakeholder partnership between governments, the private sector, and civil society. Launched by the UN Secretary-General in 2011, it has three interlinked objectives to be achieved by 2030: ensuring universal access to modern energy services, doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

The SE4All Africa Hub

The SE4All Africa Hub has the mission of facilitating the implementation of SE4All in Africa. Hosted by the African Development Bank, it is part of a network of regional hubs established within the multilateral development banks.

The SE4All Africa Hub was launched at AfDB's Annual Meetings in Marrakesh in 2013 and was the first regional Hub to be established. Its mandate derives from a resolution originating during the November 2012 Conference of Energy Ministers of Africa  tasking the African Union Comission, NEPAD Planning and Coordination Agency and AfDB to coordinate and facilitate SE4All implementation in Africa.

Hub Members

The Hub is a partnership between the African Development Bank, the African Union Commission, the NEPAD Planning and Coordination Agency and the United Nations Development Programme, with rotating membership from the regional economic communities.

Hub Partners

The Africa Hub actively collaborates with the SE4All partners, institutions and stakeholders at the global and regional levels, to facilitate the implementation of the Initiative and support the coordination of the actions.
