Our work is framed within the Sustainable Development Goals

SDG 7 Affordable and clean energyThe work we are doing is framed within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 7 – Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all – and SDG 17 – Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development -.


The fact that access to energy is one of the 17 goals shows that energy stands at the centre of global efforts to induce a paradigm shift towards low-carbon energy systems, green economies, poverty eradication and, ultimately, sustainable development.

This goal has five specific targets for 2030:

  1. Ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services
  2. Increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix
  3. Double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency
  4. Enhance international cooperation to facilitate access to clean energy research and technology, including renewable energy, energy efficiency and advanced and cleaner fossil-fuel technology, and promote investment in energy infrastructure and clean energy technology
  5. Expand infrastructure and upgrade technology for supplying modern and sustainable energy services for all in developing countries, in particular, least developed countries, small island developing States, and land-locked developing countries, in accordance with their respective programmes of support

SDG 17

If you cannot do it alone, do it with others. A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, private sector and civil society. The Shire Partnership supports this goal by building upon principles and values, and by possessing a shared vision that places people at the centre – in this case, refugee populations.
