Electrification and traditional fuels in Sub-Saharan Africa

Year: 2008 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The Southern African Development Community (SADC) consists of 15 countries, with 233 million inhabitants. Apart from Mauritius and the countries around South Africa in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU), the remaining countries exhibit low rates of electricity access and use of high quality fuels. Easy access to electricity and power increases the living standard and enables the development of additional services.
