The present report is a draft global strategy to promote market formation and self-financing Energy Efficiency (EE) improvements for implementation through the Regional Commissions (RCs) of the United Nations (UN) system. These are the United Nations Commissions for Europe, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UNECLAC), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and Pacific (UNESCAP) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for West Asia (UNESCWA). The objectives of the current draft global strategy to promote EE market formation are to (i) give an overview and analysis of EE policies and market development in the various UN RCs and (ii) recommend instruments for implementation to scale up EE development in the UN RCs through collaborative measures that the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the RCs can undertake.
