In cooperation with the Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG) and the United Nations Foundation (UNF), UN-NGLS facilitated civil society engagement with the Secretary-General’s Sustainable Energy for All Initiative from February to June 2012, with the aim of strengthening civil society engagement in the Initiative. UN-NGLS supported the efforts of UNF and the EOSG; conducted mapping and outreach to civil society on the SEFA Initiative; organized a teleconference-based civil society consultation on the Initiative through a series of calls in April; and provided civil society the opportunity to share their comments through an online platform that UN-NGLS created.
