Environment and Development Action in the Third World

Welcome to our fourth webinar in our new series. This webinar will discuss the concept of energy poverty and explore some of the main challenges in addressing energy poverty within developing countries that are themselves facing growing climate change risks. Energy poverty expert Moussa Na Abou Mamouda, from CTCN Consortium Partner ENDA Energy, will present this seminar. ENDA Energy is managed by Secou SARR.

Our presenter will discuss climate technologies related to energy poverty, focusing specifically on examples from Africa, highlighting the barriers for diffusion and use of climate technologies to address energy poverty and discussing some of the different technologies that can be used to develop more climate-smart, clean energy systems in developing countries while at the same time reducing energy poverty. With this regard, the presenter will showcase some success stories and case studies from African developing countries and devise key messages as advocacy for the promotion of suitable climate technologies for energy poverty alleviation.

Moussa Na Abou Mamouda is an environmentalist who has worked for more than 10 years in climate change adaptation exploring its linkages with Energy services. His recent work on energy poverty and access looks into the “importance of energy amenities in irrigated farming systems” and the “role of energy services in Least Developed Countries" National Adaptation Programs of Action. 

This webinar will be moderated by Libasse Ba. Audience members are welcome to send in their questions in both English and French to Moussa Na Abou Mamouda, who will also be joined by other ENDA energy experts prepared to answer questions from the audience.
