This article describes the SEI report Energy for a Shared Development Agenda: Global Scenarios and Governance Implications and quotes its lead author, SEI Research Director Måns Nilsson:
The report comes at the right time: The U.N General Assembly declared 2012 the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All, recognizing that "access to modern affordable energy services in developing countries is essential for the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals, and sustainable development, which would help to reduce poverty and to improve the conditions and standard of living for the majority of the world's population."
"Sustainable energy is not a question of North versus South," said Måns Nilsson, deputy director of SEI and lead author of the report, giving credence to the growing awareness of transnational progressivism, which views the "us-and-them" view of the world across national borders as not only antiquated, but ultimately self-defeating.
