GOGLA and AMER have published a new briefing note profiling how off-grid solar is helping to combat climate hazards and enhance resilience in Mozambique.
The country is one of the most climate vulnerable on the planet, with the twin issues of energy poverty and climate disaster devastatingly present. 22 million people lack access to energy and with it some of the most basic tools they need to help combat the devastating cyclones, droughts and flooding they must endure.
The briefing note highlights the potential for off-grid solar to help bolster food security, electrify health infrastructure and power disaster warning and response. It also explores the policies and programmes that have contributed to the development of a strong off-grid industry in Mozambique and shares case studies to illustrate the potential for even greater impact via off-grid solutions.
The publication was produced with the support of GET.invest Mozambique, funded by the European Union and Germany, and part of the European programme GET.invest.
