A new report urges AREI to ensure transparency and accountability.
The survey was developed by the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) and the African Coalition for Sustainable Energy and Access (ASCEA) in cooperation with Climate Action Network (CAN), Réseau Climat & Développement, Bread for the World, and Germanwatch. Its goal
