Southern Africa strategy - People and Technology: transforming lives
Southern Africa's strategic approach
Poor people's energy outlook 2013
The third edition of the PPEO series focuses on energy for community services. This report builds on our evidence base and our call for Total Energy Access by focusing on vital community services. It brings to life the experiences of people living in energy poverty in countries with varying geographical, environmental and development contexts such as Bolivia, Bangladesh and Rwanda. It places the spotlight on the contribution that improved energy access can make to health, education and infrastructure services such as water and street lighting.
