Dear Mr. Meisen,
Thank you for your November 8th letter
informing me about the Global Energy Network Institute
UNICEF as an organization of the United Nations,
mandated to work with and on children's issues is
concerned by the spiraling cost of energy and its
social, economic and environmental impact on families
and children, especially in the developing world.
The need to conserve and protect our environment
through a long term strategy accompanied by a series
of concrete actions would be a major shift towards
a harmonized approach to sustainable development.
The strategy to promote a global web of electricity
is indeed commendable and in our opinion highly desirable.
The outcome of your efforts to establish such a network
will be of immense help to the work of UNICEF specifically
in providing the opportunity and resources to the
most marginalized and deprived communities of the
I wish to commend you for the initiative and assure
you of our support on issues related to children.
I am pleased to inform you that I have shared your
letter with Ms. Vanessa Tobin, Chief, Water, Environment
and Sanitation. You may wish to contact her directly
to further discuss this initiative. Ms. Tobin can
be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest in UNICEF.
