Scaling energy investments in fragile states
Expanding energy access in fragile contexts is critical for these settings to recover from COVID-19 and escape fragility. This policy paper accompanies the Call to Action issued by the Council on State Fragility and g7+ on ‘Powering up energy investments in fragile states’, which calls for a new approach for scaling energy access in fragile contexts.
Powering up energy investments in fragile states
Over 800 million people worldwide have no access to electricity. More than 8 out of 10 of them live in fragile states. Scaling up energy access is critical to power the economic opportunities needed to lift people out of poverty and escape fragility, and to achieve the SDGs.
