The Relevance of Trade in Creating an Enabling Environment for Access to Energy: Perspectives from Africa
Roundtable on the sidelines of the COP 18
30th November 2012
The goal of this roundtable is to discuss the essential components of an enabling environment for providing effective and meaningful access to sustainable energy sources, particularly in Africa. Experience with existing initiatives will be shared, in particular on solar lighting, off-grid solar and clean cook stoves. The focus will be on how trade-policy and trade-cooperation can help African countries in addressing bottlenecks to access critical energy goods and services. From this, opportunities will be identified for using trade, investment and integration initiatives both within and outside of Africa.
