This book underscores how improved access to rural energy services can create benefits for rural life, from income and labor productivity to education and women’s health. Rural productivity suffers because of lack of access to modern energy. The book recommends the enhancement of programs for improved stoves, rural electrification, renewable energy, as well as greater access to commercial liquid fuels. It emphasizes that these improvements can significantly increase productivity and enhance the quality of life in rural Bangladesh.
