SIGN THE PETITION TO: #endenergypovertyfaster

This petition had 206 supporters

Right now, between the World Bank meetings this week and the African Development Bank meetings on May 23, we have an opportunity to help millions of families in the world's poorest countries get clean safe power—faster!

In 2016, 1.1 billion people still lack access to electricity. Energy access doesn’t have to wait. Multilateral development banks (MDBs) can do more to accelerate the pace of energy access via decentralized renewables—which can reach people quickly and affordably.

MDBs have much needed goals to #endenergypoverty but still focus most of their energy funding on projects that take many years to complete. At current rates, MDBs will never achieve sustainable energy goals by 2030, leaving millions of families living in the dark.

Join us and call MDBs to accelerate the pace of energy access!

To enable opportunity for an entire generation we must #endenergypovertyfaster
