Energy is a key driver of economic growth and resilience facilitating the provision of health, education, clean water, and other services for improved quality of life. At the same time, three-quarters of global carbon emissions come from the generation of electricity and direct consumption of fossil fuels. Given this reality, transitioning to clean energy is imperative for mitigating climate change, and has many co-benefits that include preventing up to 6 million premature deaths each year from exposure to toxic air pollution. To help achieve the goals of USAID’s Climate Strategy, USAID works across all aspects of the energy sector to accelerate this transition and fuel global prosperity by building critical skills among partners, strengthening institutions, and facilitating investment in technology and infrastructure. These initiatives help countries build sustainable, resilient systems, which make countries more energy secure, more prepared for the climate crisis, and better able to meet their development goals.
