ACCESS Coalition: Alliance of Civil Society Organisations for Clean Energy Access
To advocate for people living in poverty to have access to safe, reliable and affordable energy, and for environmentally sustainable and efficient energy systems globally.
The ACCESS coalition consists of a range of civil society organisations (CSOs), both international and national. We aim to strengthen the visibility and presence of CSOs working to deliver universal energy access, particularly within Sustainable Energy for All (SEforAll), Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) implementation and other global energy initiatives. We advocate at national and regional levels for transparent and inclusive multi-stakeholder participation at all stages of energy processes. We work with donors and investors to build their understanding of the energy needs of poor groups. We support capacity building of civil society actors and share best practice across our networks.
