The application for the Global Capacity Development Programme on Renewable Energy is now open. Are you interested in taking on this important education to work for a sustainable future in your country? Or do you know someone in your network that is just right for the challenge?
Invited countries are: Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The final number of countries participating in the programme may vary depending on the quality of the applications.
The overall purpose of this programme is to contribute to strengthening the conditions for investments in renewable energy to provide modern and sustainable energy systems, including all forms of renewable energy such as solar, wind, hydro, bio (including waste-to-energy) and geothermal energy. In turn this is expected to lead to poverty reduction through increased access to affordable, reliable renewable energy and access to electricity for women and men living in poverty.
The Capacity Development Programme on Renewable Energy aims at creating increased knowledge and capacity of selected organisations and participants about how different energy systems solutions based on renewable energy can be developed at different levels in society, from local communities without network connections to larger plants at national macro level. The participants will share knowledge and networks and work together in Country Teams to develop and implement a common Change Project that will support change processes within the participants own organisations and areas of activity.
