Getting Renewable Energy to Tackle Poverty

Getting Renewable Energy to Tackle Poverty

Action for Clean Energy - Global Campaign
to secure a commitment from the world leaders at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development to get renewable energy to the world’s 2 billion poorest people within 10 years.

The poor do not have access to essential needs such as clean water, health care, cooking facilities, heating, lighting.

The failure of providing these is one of the most pressing problems facing humanity today.

Renewable energy can meet people’s needs.
