The United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon, declared 2012 the International Year for Sustainable Energy for All, and launched the global energy initiative, Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) against the background of the ongoing discussion on sustainable human development underscored by Rio+20 and the ongoing global debate on energy and climate change. The main objective of this section is to provide an overview of SE4All from global perspective and the justification for domesticating the initiative in Nigeria. This discussion would serve as an important background to the study. However, before discussing SE4All from the global and domestic perspectives, it is useful to examine the nexus between energy and development. This is the focus of the next sub-section.
