Powering Africa out of Poverty

The countries involved in IE4Sahel are the 9 members of CILSS
Not much blogging for me lately. The reason is I have been working A LOT in view of the upcoming International Workshop on Energy Policies for Poverty Reduction in the Sahel (October 2-6, 2006, Niamey - Niger) as part of the IE4Sahel energy project. It's probably the most challenging stuff I have ever come across and the truth is it's really hard, since we are dealing with some of the poorest countries in the world. However, the consortium is going to do it's best to help the regional centre Aghryment in terms of capacity building and training for renewable energies, planning and policies. More news and official schedules coming up soon.
