Description

Reducing non-renewable energy consumption and exploring alternatives for energy generation are priority topics of much debate around the world. The quest for affordable and non-polluting energy is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in September 2015. One of the targets of Goal 7 is to expand infrastructure and upgrade technology for supplying modern and sustainable energy services for all in developing countries, in particular least developed countries, small island developing States, and landlocked developing countries, in accordance with their respective programmes of support. This issue of the FAL Bulletin is devoted to seeking sustainable solutions to mobility in remote areas of the region such as Amazonia.
