É Abstract: China has made great progress in the past 20 years in lifting rural populations out of poverty and in providing modern services such as access to electricity to remote rural villages and households. Still more than 20 million rural farmers and herdsmen in more than 20,000 villages remain unelectrified. Increasingly, the concept of sustainable rural energy and economic development is being incorporated into the rural development plans of the Government of China. Since 2002, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) have cooperated with the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) to support China's national rural energy programs. This paper will review the UNDP's experience in providing support for sustainable rural development, including experience with renewable energy service company (RESCO) management models in a multiple village power project in Bulunkou in Xinjiang Province, and support of China's Song Dian Dao Xiang (SDDX) rural electrification program to provide electricity to more than 1000 townships in seven provinces in western China.
