ESMAP (Energy Sector Management Assistance Program) is a technical assistance program managed by the World Bank and supported by 11 bilateral donors. ESMAP launched in January 2013 an initiative to support the efforts of countries to improve the knowledge of renewable energy resources (REN), establish appropriate institutional framework for the development of REN and provide "free access" to geospatial resources and data.
This initiative will also support the IRENA-Global Atlas program by improving data availability and quality, consulted through an interactive atlas. This study ‘renewable energy resource mapping: small hydro Madagascar’, is part of a technical assistance project funded by ESMAP, implemented by the World Bank in Madagascar (the ‘Client’), which aims to support mapping resources and geospatial planning for small hydropower. It is conducted in close coordination with the Ministry of Energy, the Electricity Regulation Office (ERO), Development Agency of Rural Electrification (DARE) and JIRAMA.
