    Background

    The West African Economic and Monetary Union (known as UEMOA from its French name Union économique et monétaire ouest-africaine) is an organisation of eight fast-growing West African states. Their pace of development means that these countries are facing electricity shortages so energy efficiency is a high priority. A previous REEEP-funded project helped UEMOA in developing a regional EE labelling programme for appliances and formed a network of country experts to handle EE issues.
