Energy and Global Climate Change: Bridging the Sustainable Development Divide focuses attention on two urgent global development challenges faced by the UN and its member states: access to sustainable energy for all, and global climate change. This book presents compelling evidence about an often neglected aspect of the energy-climate change-development nexus faced by millions of poor: problems caused by the use of inefficient and polluting energy sources, and the lack of access to sustainable energy services.
 
Based on a detailed examination of major UN global climate change and sustainable development negotiated outcomes over the course of several decades, this book argues in a powerful and insightful manner that intergovernmental negotiated outcomes aimed at solving the climate change and energy access challenges have been restricted by being placed in different negotiating silos. This “siloization” or compartmentalization has resulted in separate tracks of negotiated outcomes on two inextricably linked global development challenges; and, has thereby hindered prospects for integrated action.
 
In the context of UN led global agreements on climate change and sustainable development goals, which include separate goals on energy access and climate change, this book highlights the importance of “bold action” linking the energy access and climate change related development agendas. By addressing the heavy reliance on inefficient and polluting energy services which result in indoor pollution and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) that tragically impact millions of poor, this book sets out a unique agenda for shared and integrated action in the UN sustainable development agenda.
