Our Work - Environment and Energy
Access to affordable energy and environmental protection are essential for sustainable development. They are also essential to the poor who are most likely to be affected by environmental degradation or a lack of access to clean and affordable energy supplies. Energy and the environment are global issues, and efforts to tackle climate change, a loss of biodiversity or damage to the ozone layer are best tacked through joint action rather than by individual countries acting alone. Protection for the sustainable management of biodiversity is important to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
