Advocating 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 national and international. We aim to strengthen the efforts of CSOs working to deliver universal energy access. 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 relevant stakeholders, while also sharing best practice across our networks.
