The aim of the project is to strengthen the implementation of regionally agreed policies in West Africa concerning pro-poor climate change mitigation through access to sustainable energy. The background is that a number of strategies have been agreed regionally by for instance the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), but national implementation lags behind.

The implementation will be strengthened by increasing knowledge and ownership of the policies amongst civil society actors, private sector actors, and decision-makers nationally and regionally in ECOWAS. SustainableEnergy is cooperating with the International Network for Sustainable Energy (INFORSE) with partners in seven different West African countries: ENDA in Senegal, CEAS in Burkina Faso, MFC in Mali, JVE in Benin, OPED in Togo, AFHON in Côte d’Ivoire, and CODDAE in Niger.
