  • Gender Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning Mainstreaming

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:
    Approach:

    This paper is a first step at demystifying Gender, providing an overarching view of how the international community sees and defines Gender, as a frame of reference to shape our gender impact. This is a living document that will develop as our capacity to monitor and evaluate gender impacts develops.  

    The following chapters take us through a series of menu options for customization of REEEP Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Frameworks with Gender Mainstreamed:

  • Financing Biogas-Powered Agricultural Processing in Cambodia: Nexus

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Cambodia is a key player in the global market for exported rice and the rice-producing sector has been a pillar of national development plans to foster food security and accelerate economic development. The uptake of clean technologies needed to achieve the desired outcomes, however, has been hampered by a lack of finance and awareness of the benefits among producers.

  • Pico Hydro-Powered Agricultural Mills in Nepal: Clean Energy Development Bank and SNV

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Employing majority of the population and accounting for around 38 % of GDP, Agriculture is Nepal’s predominant sector of the economy. The country’s development strategy is therefore anchored on poverty reduction through rapid growth in the agricultural sector. At the same time, standing in the way is a combination of poor energy infrastructure, high upfront investment costs, lack of financing opportunities and underdeveloped business models for add-on services. 

  • Solar Powered Dairy Refrigeration in Bangladesh: Enerplus

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Accounting for 20.1% of GDP in 2010, Bangladesh’s economy is still predominantly agricultural. Bangladeshi citizens also suffer disproportionately from malnutrition and 30% of the population is below the minimum level of dietary energy consumption. Therefore, dairy products are vital to providing caloric and essential vitamin intakes for the people affected. 

  • Solar Powered Multi-Use Cold Storage in Uganda: Station Energy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Uganda's GDP growth of over 6% is highly dependent upon the performance of its agricultural sector, which contributes to over 70% of Uganda’s export earnings. The sector suffers from high degree of inefficiency and low productivity and the government has identified the agricultural sector as the main mechanism for increasing economic and social development in the country.

  • Solar-Powered Irrigation in Kenya: SunCulture

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    With the tremendous solar potential in Kenya and the maturity of PV and electric pump technology, the agricultural sector, including smallholder-level farms, is an ideal candidate for rapid growth, improving crop yields, productivity and farmer income while avoiding massive amounts of GHG Emissions. 

  • Solar-Powered Irrigation in Kenya: Futurepump

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Agriculture is the lifeblood of Kenya’s economy. To reduce poverty in the country, Kenya must improve its agricultural production, generate employment and prosperity, and feed a growing population. Irrigation is a key element of agrifood development, but current diesel-powered irrigation pumps are highly polluting and carbon intensive.

    Futurepump, has developed a new model to enable smallholder farmers in Kenya to adopt sustainable irrigation solutions with a proprietary solar powered irrigation pump, combined with a finance programme that allows for flexible payments.

  • Renewable Energy Farming Solutions in Nicaragua:Tecnosol

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Nicaragua is an energy-poor and agriculture-dependent country. While the cattle and dairy sector is a dominating force among the country’s agricultural sectors, its productive output is remarkably low compared to that of neighbouring countries. Inefficient herding and farm management leads to hygiene issues, high loss of livestock and low production. Most small scale farmers lack access to modern energy. The sector is in dire need of productivity improvements to remain competitive in the region. 

  • Efficient Irrigation in Nicaragua: iDEal Tecnologias

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Nicaragua, one of Central America’s poorest countries, increasingly suffers from droughts and unstable weather conditions, hampering yields and output of smallholder farmers dependent on agriculture for livelihood. While only up to 10% of arable land is irrigated, Nicaragua requires sustainable solutions for the sector to tackle water scarcity, improve production and food security, and reduce GHG emissions from inefficient and poor farming practices.

  • MP street lighting ESCOs

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Development of a sustainable financing mechanism for the implementation of energy efficiency street lighting projects in India (State of Madhya Pradesh)

  • The International Sustainable Energy Assessment-Implementation and Impact Phase

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The first and primary objective of this project will be to supply the unmet global need for a comprehensive, systematic & empirical treaty implementation database. Second, the project will expand the ISEA database to include international energy agreements from Brazil, Mexico, Russia and South Africa; and integrate this information with the treaties encompassed by the ISEA database. Third, the project creates an innovative global open-network evaluation system enabling selected experts around the world to contribute to this treaty implementation database.

  • Pacific Renewable Energy and Microfinance (PREM) Project

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    To complete an environmental risk assessment, which would enable microfinance institutions to: ascertain the level of demand and supply of RE and EE products in each country; identify the support levels available and needed for RE products; create awareness of RE and EE amongst the MFI and clients; and develop long term sustainable plans as part of their overall Institution strategy in providing the best sources of energy options for their clients and in the communities in which they operate.
