The secondary effects of the Covid-19 pandemic extends beyond health impacts. Disruptions to trade, breakdowns of supply chains, shifting national priorities and falling incomes for the world's poorest has impacted energy use and the pace of development. Over 750 million people around the globe - mostly in Africa and developing Asia - do not have access to electricity and 1 out of 3 people in the world do not have access to clean cooking fuels. They resort to burning solid fuels in open fires or using inefficient stoves, hence suffering from severe indoor air pollution.

  • How can multilateral infrastructure plans like the Belt and Road initiative and the Build Back Better World initiative improve energy access? 
  • What are the policy and technological options available? 
  • Can we address energy poverty and environmental issues with the same policy toolkit?
