(ESROC) Energy Subsidy Reform Community

Welcome to the ESROC online community

The Energy Subsidy Reform Online Community (ESROC) brings together government officials from around the world, experts from the World Bank Group and from other international organizations interested in reforming energy subsidies. This members-only online platform is a safe space for frank discussion (Chatham House rule applies), networking among peers, and exchanging knowledge and experiences to overcome the challenges of energy subsidy reform. The platform is run by ESMAP and is open to all participants in ESMAP events about energy subsidies.

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) is a global knowledge and technical assistance program administered by the World Bank. It provides analytical and advisory services to low- and middle-income countries to increase their know-how and institutional capacity to achieve environmentally sustainable energy solutions for poverty reduction and economic growth. ESMAP is funded by Australia, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, as well as the World Bank.

The work of ESMAP’s Energy Subsidy Reform and Delivery Technical Assistance Facility is made possible in part by funding from the European Commission.
