Indonesia Clean Cooking: ESMAP Supports Innovative Approaches to Build the Local Cookstoves Market, Helps Increase Access
As a key partner of Indonesiaâs Clean Stove Initiative, the World Bank is helping the government design a strategy to achieve universal access to clean cooking by 2030. ESMAP support is helping to design and pilot an innovative approach to develop a robust cookstoves market and increase household access to a range of clean stoves.
ESMAP is supporting World Bank investments to improve access to basic services by strengthening policies and building institutions in Nigerâs electricity sector.
A key solution to addressing lack of access to adequate and reliable energy, a major impediment to Madagascarâs economic and social development, is to help the country diversify its energy mix. In addition to solar and wind power, hydropower represents one of the most promising sources of power. With ESMAPâs support, the World Bank has stepped in to help the government develop priority small hydropower sites in the country.
