Renewable energy partnerships for poverty eradication and sustainable development in Africa

Objective

The objective of the project is to demonstrate the role of renewable energy in poverty eradication and to offer support to policy-making activities in sustainable resource management, health and public health, and enterprise development. The project will support and stimulate the activities of the European Energy Initiative for Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Development. International and local partnerships will be mobilised to support policy making. The partnerships will be of three essential types: Policy Partnerships, Programme Partnerships and Action Partnerships. Policy Partnerships will support the development of progressive energy policy initiatives directly through research activities and stakeholder networking. Programme partnerships will initiate and support training and capacity building initiatives. Action Partnerships will lay the foundations for concrete projects including pilot projects. Tools for the mobilisation of partnerships will include the organisation of meetings, the financing of travel expenses for meetings and workshops, newsletters, and other information networking services. Notably, three workshops will be organised in three African countries (South Africa, Senegal, Zambia), to support this activity. Results of the partnership activities will provide policy makers with the essential tools, results and information to allow them to develop targeted and effective policies. The project consortium comprises the 3 European partners WIP-ETA Consortium (Germany/Italy), ITDG (UK) and SEI (Sweden), coordinating the global energy and development networks "LAMNET", "CARENSA" and "SPARKNET" and the 3 African partners Igloo Sugar (South Africa), ENDA (Senegal) and CEEEZ (Zambia).Further, short-listed international and regional organisations will closely support the consortium in the organisation and creation of partnerships. These include NGOs, governmental organisations, multilateral institutions and companies.
