ESMAP is governed by a Consultative Group (CG) comprising representatives from contributing donors, and chaired by the Senior Director of the World Bank’s Energy and Extractives Global Practice. The CG meets annually to review ESMAP’s strategic direction, achievements, use of resources and funding requirements.
A Technical Advisory Group (TAG) of international experts appointed by the CG provides an independent evaluation of ESMAP’s progress and strategic direction. The TAG also provides advice on current and emerging energy issues globally, likely to impact ESMAP’s work.
