A New Approach to Energy Governance in Development Webinar - now available
For decades the development community has recognized the problem of poor energy governance, but approaches to improving it have been primarily technocratic. Recent work shows the importance of understanding the political economy of the energy sector when designing interventions and adapting our approach to managing energy sector projects. To tackle the climate crisis and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, we need new approaches for improving access to modern, affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy.
In tandem with the release of a white paper and technical brief on this topic, we undertook a webinar on 24th June where leading practitioners explored hurdles to energy reform and put forward a new approach to the design and management of energy sector reform programs.
