The Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Initiative was launched by the United Nations Secretary General in September 2011 to achieve three inter-related goals by 2030: (1) Ensuring universal access to modern energy services; (2) Doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency; and (3) Doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.

Since the launch of SE4ALL, Africa took the lead in responding to the initiative with 44 African countries out of 84 globally opted in the initiative.

To coordinate and facilitate the implementation of the initiative in Africa, the Conference of Energy Ministers of Africa (CEMA) issued a resolution in November 2012 requesting the AUC, NPCA and AfDB to coordinate the implementation of SE4All in Africa
