Close to 1 billion people live in urban slums and informal settlements without access to legal, safe, and reliable electricity. Under its Urban Poor Energy Access Program, ESMAP funded three knowledge exchanges among Brazil, India, Jamaica, and Kenya. Jamaican and Kenyan delegations learned about successful approaches in Brazil and India that link slum electrification with tangible community benefits.
