Affordable and Clean Energy comes as Sustainable Development Goal No.07 and, Sri Lanka has been working towards achieving this goal for a considerable time now. The goal is to achieve this target by the end of 2030, and the country has expedited its commitment.
As a part of this, UNDP in Sri Lanka organised a virtual training session recently in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Energy Managers Association. Through this session, provincial council officers from Uva, North-Western, Southern, Northern and Eastern provinces were connected virtually via Zoom. It was declared that many institutions in the country and Sri Lanka beach resorts the likes of Maalu Maalu work towards achieving affordable and clean energy. The officials aim to have more such organisations in the circle so that the platform is solid and sound.
