About the product

A crucial part of developing Millennium Development Goals (MDG)-based national development strategies is MDG costing, which quantifies the specific financial and human resources needed, as well as infrastructure required, to meet the MDGs. The Energy Costing Tool has been designed specifically to help government planners and decision makers estimate the amounts and types of energy investments required to meet the MDGs. Results of such an assessment can form the basis for developing country-specific strategies to meet the MDGs by 2015. Moreover, it provides a framework for the transparent budgeting of public expenditures to meet the MDGs.
