Connecting the sustainable development goals by their energy inter-linkages. | Cluster de Biocombustibles Sólidos

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide guide-posts to society as it attempts to respond to an array of pressing challenges. One of these challenges is energy.

The SDGs have become paramount for energy policy-making. Yet, while governments throughout the world have already declared the SDGs to be “integrated and indivisible”, there are still knowledge gaps surrounding how the interactions between the energy SDG targets and those of the non-energy-focused SDGs might play out in different contexts.

This paper reports on a large-scale assessment of energy literature to better understand energy-related interactions among Sustainable Development Goals.
