A report by Oil Change International gives a snapshot of public finance into energy in Africa. The report claims that nearly 60% of official finance over 2014-16 for African energy schemes went to support fossil fuel projects, compared to just 18% for clean energy projects – which excluded large hydropower developments.
I would like to draw your attention of my recent blog “Cooking helped us survive… modern energy cooking services can make us thrive”
Please kindly note that we have deliberately use the term “modern energy cooking service”. I highlighted “modern” instead of “clean” with the purpose to capture multiple dimensions/attributes of cooking (e.g. clean/health, efficiency, convenience, affordability, availability, and safety which the multi-tier framework is already measuring). I also highlighted “service” to emphasize the need to focus on end users and their preferences. Without focusing on the end users’ needs and their context in mind, any interventions are unlikely to be successful and sustainable. Let’s ensure we have these elements in our ECCH projects design and implementation in order to have more successful stories.
