In sub-Saharan Africa access to electricity in rural areas stands at 25% compared to 75% in urban areas. Up to 595 million people still do not have access to electricity in a season where many people are required to stay at home due to the raging COVID-19 global pandemic. According to GSMA, 50% of these people have mobile phones that need to be charged and they need to stay informed on the measures governments are taking to control the spread of COVID-19.
The Africa Clean Energy Technical Assistance Facility (ACE TAF) will host the third webinar on Gender and Social Inclusion in the Off-Grid Energy Sector. In the first two webinars we learnt about GESI experiences in West and Southern Africa. This third webinar takes us to East Africa where experts from the region will share their experiences.
