Each of the targets attached to goal 7 have an end date by which they want to achieve the target, helping measurability. Target 7.3 mentions doubling, this helps people measure the target as it uses figures that can be compared, the other targets however only use words such as increase, enhance and expand, making it harder and more subjective to see if the target has been met. The actual way that people measure these targets may differ too, for example, in Ghana surveys were taken to estimate the electricity access for households, the Ghana Statistical Services (GSS), the Energy Commission (EC) and many more institutions conducted surveys in 2010. The GSS established the electricity access was 64.2% whereas the EC determined it to be 60.4% (Brew-Hammond et al., 2014). Although there is only 4.2% difference in the measurements it is hard to know if the targets have been met, as there may be a wide range of data collected. Targets 7.1 and 7.b mention energy services; this is a highly debated definition (Brew-Hammond et al., 2014), making it, again, hard to measure. The targets are very broad and open about where they want to aim; target 7.1 and 7.2 mention universal access and global energy, this is hard to measure in certain places such as shanty towns where the population is so dense; rural areas where the population is so remote that it is difficult to access, and countries where there may be political unrest making it hard for surveyors to access the country itself. 7.a…
