VIDEO: Interviews with Lighting Africa Nigeria stakeholders
This video documents conversations with stakeholder involved in ICF / World Bank Lighting Africa Nigeria programme following a workshop in Lagos to share preliminary findings of the market intelligence research.
Since its inception in 2007, Lighting Africa has provided access to clean lighting for 6.9 million people. It has offset 138 600 tons of GHG emissions. The aim of the initial research phase is to demonstrate the viability of the Nigerian market to companies and investors by providing market intelligence on market size, consumer preference and behaviour, and business models and distribution channels. Further components of the programme include development of quality assurance, consumer education, financing mechanisms, and capacity building for SME’s. There will also be a component focusing on involving women in the supply chain and other energy access issues.
The final market intelligence report for Nigeria will be published in August, 2013.
