As it has for 30 years, the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) is actively helping low- and middle-income countries meet their energy challenges and take advantage of new opportunities. This annual report looks at ESMAP's work in Fiscal Year 2012 with an emphasis on the program's four main focus areas: energy access, clean energy, energy efficient cities, and energy sector assessments and strategies. During this period, ESMAP continued its reorientation to better serve client needs, and supported dozens of analytical and advisory activities undertaken by the World Bank's regional units.
