This project aims to strengthen civil society’s role in promoting and implementing sustainable energy transition initiatives, including renewable energy-related NDC commitments in Africa. It will equip CSOs to influence renewable energy policy development and strengthen domestic, continental, and global voices in five (5) countries. The primary target groups of this project are African civil society organisations working on climate change and renewable energy. The project will enable them to engage in a more coordinated and effective manner on issues concerning sustainable energy initiatives on the continent. The secondary target group is decision makers in Africa, namely government officials from relevant ministries and agencies and parliamentarians. Other target groups are stakeholders involved in renewable energy development and decision-makers in donor countries. We will achieve the project’s objectives through i) training and the development of information materials on renewable energy technology and policy options; ii) strengthening an effective African civil society network on renewable energy; iii) and the development of a monitoring tool that will allow civil society to independently track the progress of the sustainable energy initiatives on the continent.
