Dear Blue Blue,

The Smart Villages Initiative launches its engagement activities in West Africa later this month in Accra, Ghana. The three day workshop will involve 50 to 60 participants from across the region and aims to address the following questions:

  • What are the major barriers to improving energy access for remote rural communities in West Africa?
  • How can public, private and multilateral investment and actions complement each other to support energy access projects aimed at off-grid rural communities?
  • How can local community participation improve sustainability of off-grid energy programmes?
  • How can improved energy access increase opportunities for gainful employment, improved productivity and new businesses in remote rural communities?
As with all of our workshops, we will draw on the insights and debate generated to compile a detailed workshop report, made freely available online.
