On 19 September, the Africa Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Partnership and Energy Working Group invite you to a webinar to discuss ‘Mini-grids for rural electrification and development: Enabling effective business models through well-designed policies’. Register today for this free, open event. [more...]
Decarbonising the energy sector – that is, providing energy services via renewable resources – is an unavoidable step on the global pathway to a secure, net-zero emissions world, because energy currently contributes some 40% to the global footprint of greenhouse gas emissions (IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report, volume III Mitigation of climate change). Energy access also provides the entry point for a range of important policies that are ‘climate compatible’ in the fullest sense of delivering triple wins for development, climate adaptation and mitigation.
A range of CDKN-commissioned research and programmatic insights show how developing countries are successfully piloting low-emission, climate-resilient planning in the energy sector. Explore these below.
