Partnership Overview | Objectives

GVEP brings together developing and industrialized country governments, public and private organisations, multilateral institutions, NGOs, civil society organizations, consumers, and others to increase access to energy services for those unserved and underserved in a manner that enhances economic and social development, and reduces poverty.

GVEP objectives are fourfold:
To catalyse country commitments to energy for poverty reduction projects and programmes, and to guide policies and investment in this area.
To bridge the gap between investors, entrepreneurs, and customers in the design, installation, and operation of replicable rural and peri-urban energy projects.
To serve as a one-stop-shop for information, best practices, and lessons learned on the effective development and implementation of energy for poverty reduction projects and programmes.
To create and maintain an effective Global Village Energy Partnership organisational structure.
