In this edition: helping Liberia and Niger increase energy access by building institutional capacity and strengthening the regulatory environment; helping Madagascar to develop small hydropower to increase energy access for its population; and supporting innovative approaches to help Indonesia develop its local cookstoves market with the aim of accelerating household access to a range of clean stoves.
As a key partner of Indonesia’s Clean Stove Initiative, the World Bank is helping the government design a strategy to achieve universal access to clean cooking by 2030. ESMAP support is helping to design and pilot an innovative approach to develop a robust cookstoves market and increase household access to a range of clean stoves.
A key solution to addressing lack of access to adequate and reliable energy, a major impediment to Madagascar’s economic and social development, is to help the country diversify its energy mix. In addition to solar and wind power, hydropower represents one of the most promising sources of power. With ESMAP’s support, the World Bank has stepped in to help the government develop priority small hydropower sites in the country.
ESMAP is supporting World Bank investments to improve access to basic services by strengthening policies and building institutions in Niger’s electricity sector.
