A million US dollar grant has been launched by the UN to promote leadership and innovative practices in energy for sustainable development

According to the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), 1.3 billion people don't have access to modern energy services.

The Director of the Division for Public Administration and Development Management there says the idea of the grant came from the World Conference on Sustainable Development, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2012.

Juwang Zhu told Derrick Mbatha that many governments felt that while encouraging progress had been made, best practices and lessons learned in promoting energy for sustainable development were not being disseminated.
