Burkina Faso: World Bank approves Energy Access Project

On July 26, 2007 the World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors approved the $38.8 million Energy Access project for Burkina Faso. The goal of the Energy Access project is to increase access to, and improve Burkina Faso's electricity services.
The project will specifically finance grid-based rehabilitation, expansion, and intensification in urban and peri-urban areas, expand access to electricity services in rural, peri-urban and remote areas, and develop communications campaigns that encourage efficient energy use practices. Additionally, the project will finance community-based sustainable woodfuels supply management, inter-fuel substitution initiatives, and related training and promotional campaigns.
